Making Masks


Lizzie loves to find a project waiting for her when she wakes up in the morning.This morning, to go along with our art week, I put out several elements the girls could use to make masks.

I cut out simple mask shapes from paper plates, added crayons, a small basket of star stickers, glue sticks and the paper plate scraps I had cut off the masks.

It didn’t take her long this morning to get to work. AJ soon joined the fun.


They glued, stuck stickers and largely ignored the crayons (oh well).Lizzie opted for a more formal arrangement of the stickers, while AJ was all about the glue sticks. She added quite a few of the paper plate scraps.

I left them free to do as they pleased and only helped when asked. I love to see what they come up with on their own. Here are the finished products:
