ACTIVITY
MAKE YOUR OWN PAPYRUS
STEP 1: Mix equal amounts of water and PVA glue in a bowl.

STEP 2: Use the newspaper as a surface to work on, make it as big as wide and long as Payprus you want to make

STEP 3: Cut the brown paper bag into strips (you can also tear the strips but we found cutting them made it easier to make the papyrus)

STEP 4:
Dip the strips of brown paper bag into the Glue/Water mixture (make sure they are well covered.

STEP 5: Lay the first strip vertically and align it with the edge of the newspaper you have laid out on your table. Then continue to lay strips vertically letting the pieces of brown paper overlap. Continue until you reach the end of the Newspaper. Press and smooth to remove excess liquid.

STEP 6: Now run strips horizontally, just like you did when you were laying the strips vertically. When finished press and smooth to remove the excess liquid.

STEP 7: Let the papyrus dry. Once dry your papyrus is ready to write or draw on!
