Fun Bowls!

Yet another project from Handmade Home by Amanda Soule.

We tried the paper mache' bowls, and we love them! I made the paste recipe in the book, which worked great. Benjamin and Joanna liked playing with the paintbrushes, but most of the "work" was done by me - perhaps in a few years they'll be old enough to actually help! These took quite a while to dry, but they were easy and fun. They turned out so cool! I put cute tissue paper on the outside of the bigger ones, which made them pretty, but even the plain newspaper ones looked really neat. It was so fun to see pieces of paper turn into something useful! The kids have been using them for sorting, and I think they would be fun for a small "gift basket" type gift.
