paper mache and 2 year olds.

step 1: wait for the postman to come on wednesday with all of your junk mail and grocery store flyers...
DO NOT forget to yell "mailtime" in a sing songy voice (blues clues influence here, kids do this every day the mail drops through our slot)
tear up those flyers in a frenzy, whirling and screaming, into little tiny pieces and strips.. (think this was their favorite part)
i didn't get pictures but it looked something like this

step 2...thoroughly saran wrap your bowls,holding with masking tape on the inside...

mmm...floury-watery delicious....
Dip strips and smooth onto bowl.

For obvious reasons i did not attempt photographing while bowl making was in session.

Let dry overnight.
Gently toss 3 very messy toddlers into big soapy bath tub.

Now, let the painting begin!
