Ever heard of Tyvek?  It’s a material that you can’t rip and it won’t leak.  It’s used to make mailing envelopes and cover the outside of houses before the siding is put on.  It’s not made from wood like most paper is, and therefore it can’t be recycled with your old newspapers and homework.  Well here’s a good use for it:  turn it into a waterproof cover for a little journal, complete with fold-out pages for maps and large sketches.  We’ll have all the parts ready and cut; you just put it together and decorate it.  (Maybe you could save it for a Christmas present for a favorite explorer friend.)


Ages 8 & up.
