  1. Draw a circle on the paper plate and then cut out a hole big enough to fit your face.
  2. Cut the yellow and orange construction paper into 1 inch strips.

TIP: Parents, if you have a paper trimmer or cutter, this part will go faster if you cut multiple sheets at a time.

  1. Glue the strips around the paper plate alternating colors; an orange strip then a yellow one until the circle is covered
  2. Outline the ears. Use the brown sheet of construction paper to make the outer part of the ear, then cut a smaller ear from the black sheet of construction paper
  3. Glue the black pieces over the brown
  4. Glue the ears to the paper strips. Make sure to glue the ears over the plate area – the strongest part of the mask
  5. Glue or staple a large Popsicle stick to the bottom of the plate. This will be the masks handle.
