Paper Making

Don’t know what to do with all that scrap paper from other crafts? You can turn it into more paper that you can use to write letters to your camp friends and companions! Paper making is a great way to recycle in your own home while getting creative. You can use any scrap paper you have and brighten it up with flower petals, confetti or other materials you find!

Safety First!
Have your parent or guardian help you with blending the pulp.


  • Never put your hand inside the blender

  • Make sure the blender is covered before pressing on

  • Keep your blender on a flat surface and unplug it immediately when you’re finished

Materials Needed
  • Blender (if you don’t have a blender, check out our alternative below!)

  • Scrap paper ripped up into squares – the more colourful, the better! (1 C)

  • Water (enough to cover the paper in the blender)

  • Fine strainer

  • Sink or large bowl

  • Paper towel or tea towels (x2)

  • Markers for writing your letter

  • Seeds

  • Flower petals

  • Threads

  • Sparkles

What to Do
  1. Layout paper towel or tea towels on a counter where they can stay for 24 hours, or on a baking tray if you want to be able to move the drying paper.
