      Uhm, I think altogether like… 10-15 hours. I know it was at least 3 three hour class periods plus whatever extra hour or two I added.

      Always a fun project to consider with the little one!
      The secret : Tearing the back off of one side of corrugated cardboard lends flexibility to the entire sheet. Then paper mache that mother!
