These decorative papier-mâché candy dishes are a fun and easy project to make with your kids.
Papier-mâché is simply strips of paper soaked in a mixture of flour and water that gets hard when it dries. Newspaper works great.
The curved shapes were made by applying several layers of soaked newspaper strips around a balloon.
What to do:
This type of cross-discipline experimentation is the foundation for developing the critical thinking skills that lead to innovative new products & technologies. 'Learning how to learn' is an essential skill younger generations will need to live in an increasingly complex world.
Angela Black of Open Your Art will be bringing a group of 10 children with their parents to the Fredericton Makerspace this Thursday evening, January 29th to give them an up close look at 3-D printing - hopefully inspiring them to create their own 3-D designs.
This is a pre-arranged event in cooperation with Open your Art so the space will not open to the general public until after 8:00pm.
We're always pleased to be able to host an event like this to show off the space and expand the creative horizons of young and old alike.
If your organization would like to explore the possibilites of our collaborative creative community please contact us.
