Making Masks

Kids Can Press

Readers can create 13 styles of masks ranging from a crazy cat and ugly bugly bug to a dangerous dinosaur and grumpy green gargoyle. The masks are simple to make and require materials readily available at home or at hardware or craft stores. Colour photographs make the masks, which appeal to both boys and girls, come alive. mRb
