So way, way, way back in the 6th grade, our class did a recycling project where we crafted our own "homemade recycled paper". I remembered it being relatively easy to do, not too messy, inexpensive, and most importantly- fun! Knowing that many people in our class have kids, I thought it would be neat if I could find and post directions on how to do this. I did a few searches and found this great instructional video on youtube.

Also, I found this other really interesting news clip about a new material, made from recycled paper, that is being used to build homes. I'm not sure if it was mentioned on the blog already, but the video is only a couple minutes long so be sure to check it out!!
