Design your own masks
I purchased the full and half masks for our KID'S LIFE after-school program at our church.
They decorated these as their craft project last week. They just love doing these. They even wore them home.
Most all of the items I order are for Kid's Life, VBS or
our Sunday School.

Fifth graders made these Egyptian masks in art class. They enjoyed working with different types of paints. The masks were spray painted and then the students used tempera paint for the eyes. This lesson went right along with their studies in history class.

Better than plastic
Bought these to use in my Halloween decorations for the cemetery painted with glow paint. MUCH sturdier than the plastic ones offered here that I've bought in the past. Also the paint stays on better (tends to crack off the plastic ones). Pricier than the plastic ones too, but I'm sure they'll hold up better.

A Good Purchase
The masks are appropriate if you just want to hang them. They do not come with strings to keep on the face. When putting elastic or ribbon on the mask in order to wear them, the holes tear out easily. So for decoration, hanging, or gluing a stick on the side in order to hold, they are fine. My class enjoyed decorating them. My students presented monologues from behind their masks.

These masks are sturdy and easy to use. We have used them with groups of children ranging from 1st grade to teenagers, and have decorated them with paints, markers, collage materials, feathers, etc. The facial features are very neutral and nonthreatening - not scary or creepy like some other masks.

We had a blast decorating the masks.

Paper mache masks
I cut out the mouth and nose and make a skeleton mask out of this for Dia de los Muertos. The kids paint it, then decorate it with gel pens. Very beautiful.

Great craft activity
We used this activity for a Bring your Child to Work Day. The kids loved it! They were so creative.

These masks are just what I wanted for an art project. So much better than the flimsy plastic ones. Just be aware that there are only 6 in a package - not a dozen.

My classroom used these masks for Mardi Gras. They all came out really good! We used paint, glitter and feathers. One student used modge podge. There are a lot of possibilities! In the past I have used plastic masks, which did not work out as nicely. The jewels and glitter wouldn't adhere to the masks, even with special glue.
