Paper Discovery Center

If you don't know already, there are tons of paper plants here near us. They have a little center that you can go a learn about the process of making paper, plus they even let you make your own. It was a fun activity to go and do.
First step: Rip up old paper into pieces. 2nd: Put in blender and add water.
3rd: dump in a mold

4th: Dry with a sponge

5th and 6th: put between 2 pieces on think paper and put of board over the top and push down. We had to do it twice. 7th: she put them in a press with a crank. 8th: She then put them in a dryer that looked liked a big flat iron. Then you are done.
They also had a little magnet exhibit
The finished product
