For an art project this week we made masks. I was doing a brief overview of Africa for my sonâ€™s homeschool co-op, so I figured masks worked as an African themed craft. As an added bonus masks are pretty seasonal for Halloween too. Of course any time there is a fun craft project my teenage daughters have to be involved, since they donâ€™t want to miss out. This time they mainly helped by cutting out the masks shapes for all the kids in co-op, which was a huge timesaver for me. They also raided our craft area and found everything that could possibly be glued on a mask for me to bring along. Then they had to make their own masks, so I could take samples. Here are our finished products.
I should add that my 14 year old who made the lion mask followed directions from a craft site to make it, she didnâ€™t come up with the design on her own.
