Paper Plate Mask

Paper plate masks are easy to make and allow your child to express his creativity, not only making the paper plate mask, but also using it to act as someone else afterward. After reading a book or watching a movie together, encourage your child to make masks of the different characters and recreate some of the scenes from the story.
