Paper Mache Shofar

Materials needed:

1) Paper towels - 7-8.
2) Aluminum foil
3) Newspaper - 10.
4) Poster paints or markers
5) Glue

Instructions:
  1. Tear the newspapers into small rectangular strips (about 2" wide and 4" long). Immerse these completely in a large bowl container with 3/4 parts glue & 1/4 parts water. Leave the solution for about six hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Rub the paper strips together to prepare a paper mache paste.
  3. Roll 5-6 paper towels together to form a horn-like structure.
  4. Wrap the horn completely with the aluminium foil and shape like a shofar.
  5. Cover the surface of the foil shofar completely with 2-3 layers of paper mache. Leave it for 3-4 hours.
  6. Cut the shofar in half before the mache dries fully. Remove the foil and again let the shofar dry.
  7. When the shofar has dried, apply glue to fix back the two halves. Allow it to dry for 3-4 hours more.
  8. When it has completely dried, embellish your papaer mache shofar using the poster paints or markers you have.

1) An empty cocoa box with lid
2) Scissors
3) Colored paper
4) Double-sided tape

  2. Apply glue on all sides of the box. Wrap the construction paper around the box, covering all the surfaces. Make sure that you leave out the slit.
  3. Decorate the construction paper with glitters, markers and crayons.
