Homemade Paper

Activities: Make Homemade Paper; I've made paper using old newspaper before, but not toilet paper. For me, this kind of defeats the purpose of recycling (as the toilet paper is unused and who'd want to use used toilet paper??? yuck!). Still, the project can show kids how paper can be made. I still like using newspaper better....you have to involve a blender for that instead of just the plastic bottle. You also have to bleach or color the paper unless you just want gray.
