Make Your Own Masquerade Masks

by , posted on February 24th, 2011 in Arts & Crafts

This year, Mardi Gras falls on March 8. To celebrate this New Orleans tradition (in a kid friendly way), try this do-it-yourself masquerade mask project.

These kids came up with this craft on their own and wanted to share it with you. They chose the materials, colors and were pretty independent when it came time to making them. I did help one of them a little when it came time to glue the feathers on. My suggestion: to make it an even more independent activity, stick to using only marabou feathers. They’re so much easier to attach.

Before I go, these kids had a couple of ideas for playing with the masks once they’re made. Here’s what they suggested:

Use them in a play
Use them in a made up game
Use them in a parade
Use them just for fun
Wear them to a party
It could even be a gift for a friend

Have fun with this one!
