Day 12: Safe Carriers Part I

Goal:

    Students will use modern packaging materials to create a safe place.

Process:

  1. Give each student a small balloon. On a piece of paper any size or shape, ask the students to write something very personal about themselves, something that embarrasses them or something that they are not proud of. Assure them that no one will ever be able to read it as they will fold it into a tiny shape and put it into their balloon. When they are finished, have them wad up their paper, deface it if they want, and push it into their balloon. Have the students blow up the balloons and tie the ends.
  2. Using Paper Mache or flour and water and newspaper strips, have the students completely cover the balloons. They need to cover the whole surface with several layers of newspaper.
  3. Have the students hang their eggs from a clothesline with clips attached to the knotted end to dry.
