  • Make Your Own Paper


    I’m putting this on the list of cool things to do with the kids when they’re a little older: papermaking. (Although Marc tells me the boys won’t find it cool. They’ll say “Why bother?”)


    1. MetaMommy says:

      That sounds like a really fun hobby. A very artistic expression. I found Hiromi Paper, a beautiful paper store that has paper making supplies in Santa Monica, and I vaguely think about it every time I walk in.
      I hope it works out for you guys.

    2. I had to let you know that I won first place in my school’s science fair with my paper making science project.

    3. Patti – That’s cool! Do you remember how you did it? 🙂

    4. I wish I could remember what ingredients we used. Maybe I will run into my science partner someday and ask her!
