Recently we had Georgia and Josh Kontominas stay with us at Londolozi, we had the best time doing what we do best like, climbing trees, tracking and doing arts and crafts. After they left Georgia was kind enough to send me a story so I thought I’d put it up with a couple photo’s from their stay…

Hello Cinzia

Here is my story on How   to  make  elephant  dung     paper.  and  a  plaster  paris   track for anyone who wants to know.

First   you  need  a     bucket  elephant    dung   water   paper   and     coloured   cardboard   then   you    have  to  tear   the  paper   into  little  pieces    then   put   them  in  the  bucket  then

Do   the  same  thing  with  the  cardboard  then   break   the   elephant   dung   and   put  it  in   then   put  sum  water   in    not   to  much  mush   it   up  then   let  it  dry  for  2   days.

To    make  a  track  you  need    plaster   water    and   a   bucket   and    you   need    to   find  a  track  that   is  a  little  bit  wet  draw  a  circle  around   it   put   the  plaster   in   the   bucket

Put   sum   water  in   the  bucket  to  and   again   not  to   much

Then   get   a  stick   and  mix  put   it   on   the   track  wait  for   the  plaster paris    to   dry     for  20.

And   that’s    how  you  make   elephant  dung  paper  and   a   track.

Love Georgia

Firstly you rip paper up into small pieces and add in elephant dung and some water

This is what the paper and dung looked like after it had been mushed up, it was green because we put green paper in it

It doesn’t look so nice, does it. But it makes awesome paper! Have you ever made paper with something besides paper before?
