Autumn Masks

Pin It

Recently we had a great trip to the forest with cousins and friends.  We built dens, fought with sticks, jumped in puddles and ran around A LOT.  But, for a bit of downtime we did a craft before our picnic lunch - Autumn masks!
First, I handed out some paper plates that I'd already cut out the middles of.  Then everyone got a lollipop (popsicle) stick which we taped to the plates.

Next up, glue sticks.  Each child glued the edges of the paper plates so they were nice and sticky.

Then, we sent the kids into the woods to find leaves, twigs, pine needles etc to stick on their masks.
This is Champ's leaf mask....

.... Bud's pine disguise....

... and another leaf creation from Cousin J.
The kids (all 10 of them!) really enjoyed them especially as they got to forage and craft all at the same time!
