An Easy Way to do Papermaking

Papermaking with a large group can be tough in terms of supplies and mess. So this is my advice. Make the paper pulp for the students before they lesson and store it. Demonstrate how you made it for them when you start the lesson so they can understand the process. Rather than use screens, which you would need many depending on the class size, have them press the pulp into shapes and add inks to color. You could also have dried flowers and textiles for your students to press into the pulp.
