Gluten Free Paper-Mache

1 c. Elmer's Glue or other gluten-free glue
1/2 c. water

Combine the glue and the water.  

To use: tear sheets of newspaper into strips and dip them into the glue. It is easier to tear newspaper into neat strips when you tear along the grain of the paper.  Try tearing the newspaper both vertically and horizontally to discover which way the grain runs.  

Attach the strip of newspaper to the object you would like to Paper-Mache.  We use a balloon that is blown up. Attach the paper to the balloon. When the paper dries, cut a hole in the top of the Paper-Mache and be sure to pop the balloon.  Fill the Paper-Mache with candy, stickers or prizes and a piñata is created.
