Paper Mache: Probably the cheapest and most fun craft we do. Old shredded newspaper, flour and water (and whatever you want to use as a "form" from balloons to tin foil). I use folk art paint to finish off, and I spray it with a nice gloss finishing spray if it is something I want to keep. I really like the colors on this "mask." We are going to make some for Mardis Gras. Just completed our "piggy" from angry birds for a pinata for this weekend. Making beads is fun as well.
