Have your children tear or cut newspaper into 1-inch strips. Put the strips into a pail, and add enough water to cover the paper. Let set overnight. Drain off the water, add a small amount of white glue and mix. (One cup of white glue to half of a 5 gallon pail) Cover the table with plastic and give each of the children about two cups of the mixture. Let them shape it into a sculpture. If their hands get too sticky, have them dip them in water. Let their creations dry and paint.
