Make a Paper Bowl

The Chinese invented paper over 4000 years ago. For our unit on ancient China, we made our own paper bowls in the classroom last week. The main things you need are construction paper, newsprint, water, a blender, and a kitchen sieve. For step-by-step instructions with lots of photos, check out my How to Make a Paper Bowl page.


  1. What a great idea. My kids always love hands-on creative projects like making paper and what a great way to tie it into a unit study on China.

  2. Thanks. Something to try when you get a new blender.
