Our kids loved this! We started with red solo cups and cut the bottom off.
Next, mix the paper mâché mix.
Equal parts water, flour, and white school glue, and add 1 tsp salt. Mix, and then dip your strips of paper into it, gently scraping the excess off as you pull it out.
Then, just lay it on your cup, you want to do one layer, and let it dry, then add extra layers if needed. Otherwise, it will dry unevenly and crack or won’t dry. Smooth the paper gently with your hands as you go, to work out any bubbles or wrinkles.
Leave your cups sitting on a plate (I would seal the edges with glue and allow it to dry… We didn’t and out mix escaped out the bottom).
Pour 1/2 cup baking soda and 2-3 drops of food coloring into the bottom of the cup. Next, pour 1/2 – 3/4 cup white vinegar over the baking soda, and BOOM… Magic. (Not a literal boom….)
