Now let’s play with newspapers. Tear a newspaper into half. Then tear it into strips. Rip, rip. Rip it all up. Rip, rip. Now you have lots of strips
and we can play. Let’s play tug of war.
Take a strip of paper, and if it tears, you lose. Ready? Go! One more time. Ready? Go! Ready? It’s a tie!? One more time. Go! Now let the half-strips fall. Flutter, flutter, sideways. Flutter, flutter, hold it in the center, Flutter, flutter, now bring the strips back here. And we’ll make them into balls. Try to make the ball small and tighter. Make lots of them. Tight, light balls from newspaper.
Pack them tightly. Use them all up. Now let’s play with the balls. Try to hit the target. First, make a box out of the newspaper by shaping the corners. We have lots of balls, So now we’re ready. Just shoot them into the box. Recipes for Play
