With Valentine’s Day coming up on February 14, Master Gardeners worked with the second grade students from GISD on January 31, 2019 and demonstrated how paper is made. David DeMent explained that making paper has been around for several thousands of years. Without paper, we would not be able to learn how to read and write. The very excited group of students learned how to make card stock paper with a Valentine’s theme using torn up paper towels soaked in water, a screen frame, a rolling pin and a few decorations. Once the card papers are dried, the students create a valentine message and give the card to someone special in their lives.
