5 Uses For Newspaper

Here is another item we all have around the house that you can use in some fun ways.

1. Hockey inside.  Make a rink with books around the edges.  Add a popsicle stick and then use the newspaper as the puck.

2. Grocery Ad: Make your own grocery ad by cutting items out of the ads and gluing them to a piece of paper.  Add prices and name your store.

3. Pinata: Cut the newspaper into strips and then dip into your paper mache soluation.  (Great one found here http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/best-papier-mache-recipe-708645/).  Add it to a blown up balloon.  Cover it well with the strips.  Allow it to dry 2 days or so.  Paint and pop the balloon!  Fill with candy and enjoy.

4. Paper Boy: Give your child a small bag and have him or her role play being a paper boy.

5. Scavenger Hunt:  This is a great way to encourage reading.  Highlight sight words or have a word hunt.
