|a finished mask...|
|cutting out the "petals"|
|last task--paint around the eyes, which made the eyes pop a little more|
|I love how they are came out differently even thought they all used the same templates....|
|after the masks were all glued I had them curl each petal (or feather?) around a pencil to give the petals a slight curl which added more definition to the mask...|
|all finished !|
|the mask looks pretty great when she wears it....|
|6ht graders with their masks|
For the grades K through 3rd, we made simpler masks with triangles (I cut those) glued to paper plates. The little ones delighted in gluing the colorful triangle to the plates. I cut bright yellow shapes to go around the eyes....
|gluing triangles onto partial paper plate....|
|finished masks....just need the ties...|
we had a Carnival "Come As You Like Day" ---where the kids came all dressed in whatever costume they wanted and some wore their masks...
this was a fun craft project for all of us....and the kids loved it!
