The girls and I started working on some simple paper plate masks today. We used paper plates cut in half, glue with a tiny bit of water added, and tissue paper squares. I had a bunch of tissue paper already cut-up, but you could also tear it as you go along. And, for sparkle, we added some glitter to our glue.
We spent about 45 minutes gluing and gluing – I encouraged the girls to put an additional layer of glue on top of the tissue paper for extra sparkle! Natalie decided to make animals, so she spent a great deal of time sorting out the colors of tissue she wanted. She’s making a frog and an elephant. At her request, I also cut out ears and a trunk from paper plates, and she covered those too. I think Delaney is making a rainbow elephant. :)
The masks are out in the sun drying – tomorrow we’ll post the finished products!
