We take paper plates and let the child decorate their own monster face. They cut out eyes, nose and mouth. They use yarn. glitter, sequins, colored pasta, markers, crayons, tissue paper...anything we have in the art center . Then we paper hole punch a hole on each side, and add yarn to tie the mask on.
