Paper mâché toys

Paper mache. At least that's how I think it's spelt. Please could someone tell me what glue to use for this project or should I use flour and water to stick the newspaper on. Thank you in advance.

i would think the flour & water glue would be ok, they can eat a bit of bread so the small amount of flour paste shouldn't be too bad.

I wouldn't use any glue, but the flour and water sounds a good option.
Would love to see the results  :biggrin:  sounds like a good idea.
