How about a crafty post!!

So I figured it's been awhile since I made a craft post and me and the kid's are going to be making home made paper mache. This is a first for us using a homemade recipe insted of glue and i will post pictures threw the process. Plus this give's us use of all the extra news paper's we have from purchasing them for coupon's lol.

Below is the recipe we are going to try. (found in a google search)
To make it, combine 1/2 cup all-purpose flour and 2 cups cold water in a bowl. Add this mixture to a saucepan of 2 cups boiling water and bring it to a boil again. Remove from the heat and stir in 3 tablespoons of sugar. Let it cool; it will thicken as it cools. Once it does, it's ready to use.
