Papier-Mâché Part 3

After all the campers hard work it is time for the bells and whistles. The pom-poms, and feathers. The customization that will add the final touches to their papier-mâché piece. I explain that there are 5 boxes of decorations for them to choose from. They can pick ribbons from the ribbon box, or marbles and googley eyes from the round objects bucket, or pipe-cleaners from the pipe-cleaner box, or feathers and pom-poms and old fake flowers and assorted beads from the assorted box, or tufts of tissue paper from the tissue paper box. The campers will come up as they complete their other projects, and select for themselves what they would like to add to their papier-mâché. Then they will walk over to the hot glue gun station where a counselor (one of my amazing 13-15 year old volunteers) will use a low heat, hot glue gun to attach their accoutrements.

Here is a great microscope:

I absolutely love this next photo. It looks like a scene from The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
