As everyone is home schooling at the moment, I thought it would be a nice idea to show a simple craft that can go alongside a book. By make the character into a mask!
Last year I ran the craft section at the Gruffalo's 20th anniversary's pop up shop, where we made the cutest masks from paper plates and scraps of card & felt... It's super simple, and involves cutting & sticking. So great for all ages!
Here's what we made, along with some more simple ideas!
All you need:
Paper plate - or card (just draw around a plate & cut out)
Coloured card or paper with colouring pencils
Lollypop stick/ Paper straw or pencil
The bear who stared:
They don't even have to match... just take inspiration and use what you have!
There's an Alien in your book.... or Toy Story???
Or, why not a film?
I hope this inspires you, please send in any masks you make!
