Missy's Autumn Masks

Hello friends! It's Missy here. I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween. We've heard a lot about the importance of wearing a mask in public and there are many different kinds to wear. This is an activity where you make a mask that you can wear for fun, while pretending that you're the ruler of the forest!

Supplies:

  • Printed PDF pattern
  • Leaves
  • Scissors
  • Yarn or string
  • Hot glue (or liquid glue, but it takes longer to dry)
  • Pen or marker
  • Felt
  • Paper towels

Instructions:

  1. Print the PDF mask pattern.
  2. Go on a walk and collect fallen leaves of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
  3. Dry the leaves by patting them on each side with a paper towel.
  4. Using your scissors, cut out the mask pattern.
  5. Cut two 12 inch pieces of yarn or string.
  6. Lay the pattern on the felt and trace it using your pen or marker. 
  7. Cut the mask out of the felt, including the holes on the side. 
  8. Thread a piece of yarn or string through the holes on each side of the mask, and tie them using double knots.
  9. Lay your mask flat on the table and try different ways of displaying the leaves to make a neat design. Once you decide on a design you like, ask a parent to help you glue the leaves to the mask. It looks extra striking if you use symmetry in your design. Symmetry means the same on both sides. 
  10. Let the glue dry. 
  11. Put your mask on and tie it over your ears and behind your head. 
  12. Go to a mirror and check out how amazing you look in your new mask! 

Wrap-up

Making these masks is a great way to connect with nature and get out of the house. Try to identify different types of leaves from different trees and plants. The possibilities are endless. Have fun collecting!
