What does it mean?   What can transform? Are humans the only things that can transform?    All of these questions and more were discussed at the beginning of this mask making project.  Students realized transformation goes on all around us (seasons, animals, people) it's just a matter of looking closer.   What fun it was to see personalities come alive through mask making. While some students decided to transform themselves in ways they felt comfortable with others ventured out onto unexplored territory.  Either path, the results were wonderful to see and share.

The How To:

  1. Cut poster-board into desired size.
  2. Draw, paint or color mask.
  3. Provide extra poster board to add other elements such as hats, ears, random shapes, etc.
  4. Staple to the main piece. 
  5. Cut a slit leading to each eye then cut around to form the eye shape.
  6. Tape the slits closed on the back of the poster board.
  7. Add a pop-sickle stick to hold mask.
  8. Voila!
