Papier mâché is lots of fun. Click here for some great project ideas. For the paste, you can use shop-bought wallpaper paste, a mix of white PVA glue and water or try making your own paste out of flour and water. For projects with young kids, a flour and water paste is a good option as it is non toxic and cheap to make. It is surprisingly strong and dries clear. Here is how to make it.
