Around the world in 45 weeks: Passports

18 Jul

We can’t go anywhere without passports.  So, I’ve decided to begin with the passports.  The passports is actually a writing book and we will be using it as a memory book with photos of all the countries we’ve "visited", etc.

So let me show you how we did it:

I printed a picture of the world map on A3 paper.  Then I let each child painting on it with lemon juice.   my son painted each country and my daughter, well….  just painted.

Then we’ve made a strong bowl of coffee (about 6 spoons of coffee with 2 cups of water).  And let it cool off.

Dip the paper in the coffee mix.  I will use a baking tray next time for it.

Place it on a cookie tray

And pop it in the oven at about 200 degrees Celsius for about 5 minutes

Take it out.  You will see the parts that was painted with lemon juice came out darker than the rest.

Then I just cover the book with the paper.

So, now we are ready for the world.  See you next week to tell you about our "trip" to Indonesia.
