Tales of a 4th Grade Donut

4th graders are busy working on paper mache donuts.  We created an armature, or the skeleton of a sculpture, using rolled up newspaper.  Then layers of paper and paper mache paste were added to build up the donut.  The last layer is construction paper.  It’s not only easier than painting the donut, but it also adds another layer of strength and will contrast well with our glossy donut “frosting” later on.

Getting some more sweet tea, I mean, paste.
Helping each other make sure everything is nice and smooth.
Working hard to get that chocolate donut just right!
These ladies finished a little early, so they did some building activities.
Almost done! Can you spot the Gucci donut?
