Native American Mask

This is a fun activity for any age because it if mostly painting. Who does not like to paint?

You will need:Heavy paper plates, paint, brushes, beads, yarn or pipe stem cleaners, scissors, egg carton, feathers, stapler, tape and wooden stick.

First cut 2/3 of the plate rim off.

Cur the rim in half.

Paint the back side of the plate and the rim pieces.

Cut out and paint two egg holders from the carton for the eyes.

Paint them.

String to lines of beads for each mask you make.

Staple the rim pieces on for the horns. Glue feathers to the ends of the rim.
Glue on eyes.

Cut a few inch slit on the bottom of the mask.

Fold into a cone like shape and staple. This will make the mask look like it has a chin.

Poke to holes in the cheek area and attach beads.

Next tape on wooden stick with a heavy tape.

We also made shields from a round piece of cardboard.
