A perfect holiday activity-Making Recycled Paper

Don't know what to do with that Christmas paper, that was used to wrap your present. We've got the answer for you!!! Use it to make recycled paper. If holiday boredom has got to you and you don't know what to do then this might be a perfect holiday activity to do. Just remember to ask Mum and Dad about using the Equipment and keep safe around using the appliances. This is a great activity to do, and your recycled paper could be used for: writing Thank you Letters to your friends and family, Making Cards, Mini Posters etc. When you've finished making your recycled paper, let it dry and then peel it off the boards. Six Cups of ripped paper makes about 4-5 sheets. You can mix your colours together or use separate colours. You can use glitter, once it is beaten up or you can use flower petals or fragrances such as lavendar. Enjoy making your recycled paper.

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas to all our listeners from around the world. Hopefully it is not too cold where ever you are. Here in New Zealand we will be celebrating our Summer by going to the beach, camping, fishing and having plenty of BBQ's.
We would like to Thank you all for tuning in to listen to our podcasts and visiting the blogsite during 2008. At the moment the schools are closed for our long Christmas Holidays, but there will still be posts/podcasts on this blogsite for you to enjoy.

Have a great Christmas and Best Wishes for 2009
From Room 8 at Glenbrae School & Miss Joy Paton (Classroom Teacher)
