My friend Linda came up with this great mask activity. This is one of the those projects perfect for a broad age range. Older kids can get more creative and embellish their mask. Begin with a piece of card stock. Trace a pair of sunglasses that fit your child onto the paper. This will be the back of the mask. The sunglasses will help you determine where the eye holes should be. Pretty clever!
We knew we were going to create a butterfly mask, so I went ahead and traced my daughters hands on the same side as the sunglass outline.
Next turn the paper over and decoupage tissue paper onto the mask. We added sequins and glitter. Since you do not want glitter or sequins near a child's eyes I covered the paper with contact paper after it had dried. This sealed everything inside. Cut out mask into any shape desired. Attach (tape or hot glue) to a straw. stick, dowel, chopstick... You get the idea.
