We made these ornaments by using recycled paper.
We started by playing with water and paper. She tore, mixed, kneaded, dyed, and transferred the paper. I only provided the paper, tray, and water. Miss E determined how to play with it and added extra bowls, kitchen utensils, and paint found in her outdoor play kitchen. By far, this was her favorite step of the ornament making process, and she played with the water and paper for close to an hour. I will definitely add paper as a regular "ingredient" in our outdoor kitchen for future play.
