Autumn Mask

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I've created templates for this craft so you can make it as a paper version, but you could also collect your own leaves outdoors and decorate your mask with nature's bounty!  If you do use real leaves and grasses just remember that they'll get crunchy and messy after a while, so you might want to store it somewhere safe when it isn't being used.

autumn maskI've provided a large template and a small one -- I suggest you start with the small template for kids and check it out for size before decorating.  You can also make your own mask by tracing the child's hands onto autumn colored construction paper -- the nice thing about this method is that holes in your own handprints will fit your face perfectly!
