Have a look at the papier-maché cottages we made. They took a long time to make but we are delighted with them. First teacher made the mixture using flour and water. Then we dipped pieces of newspaper into the mixture and put it on our empty milk cartons. We had to put several layers of paper on. It took a few days to dry and then we were able to paint our cottages. We glued match sticks on the roof to create a lovely effect.
