Split campers into groups of 5-10 kids per group. Campers are given recycled newspapers and masking tape and asked to make a chair strong enough to support the weight of a counselor. Each group will need a fair amount of paper, about 10 lbs of newspapers per group. (Most newspaper companies sell old newspaper for $0.10 a pound.) Campers are only told they must make a chair out of newspaper and masking tape. (Counselors with the group can add guidelines and tips)


Campers are given recycled newspapers, masking tape and very little instruction.
