SUN MASK [From: Weather]
Written by: Andrea Mulder-Slater [Andrea is one of the creators of KinderArt.com]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

Welcome the warm weather with this easy to make mask. It's as good as gold.

What You Need:

Heavy cardboard, Pencil, Scissors, Paint and/or markers, Containers for paint, Paintbrushes, Masking tape, Yellow and orange and gold yarn (or even gold colored tinsel).

What You Do:

  1. Draw a large circle (around 10" in diameter) on the cardboard.
  2. Cut the circle out.
  3. Draw a number of triangles (about 8-10) for the sun rays.
  4. Cut the triangles out.
  5. Draw where the eyes will be on the cardboard circle and cut them out.
  6. Paint all of the pieces and let them dry.
  7. When the pieces are dry, tape the triangles to the circle so that the tape is on the unpainted side.
  8. Draw and cut-out a rectangular piece of cardboard as a way to hold on to the mask. Tape this to the circle as well.
  9. Next, decorate the sun mask by adding a nose, mouth and any other bits of fabric, yarn or tinsel you would like to make the sun shine!
