This weeks Unplugged Project was wrinkle, and it took me some time to come up with a project using this theme, but I finally settled on a homemade treasure map, suitably wrinkled to fit the theme.
We started with white copy paper and tea bags.
The kids tore the edges off the paper to make it look old.
They then WRINKLED the paper up. The smallest kids didn't want to do this important step, I think they thought it would ruin their paper, but they finally did wrinkle and then unfold the paper.
We then made tea. Everyone added a teabag and waited to the tea to be ready for the wrinkly paper.
I put the paper in a cakepan and added the tea. We let it soak for about 10 minutes, removed the paper and let it dry.The result is old, wrinkled, antique looking paper, ready to be made into a map.
