What to do:
Provide crayons or markers, pieces of black yarn, construction paper, safety scissors, and non-toxic glue for your child to use. Cut a large, simple triangle out of the black construction paper for a witch's hat, or, if capable, have your child do this.
Ask your child to draw a scary face on the back of a paper plate. Have him/her glue on the pieces of yarn for hair and the black triangle for the witch's hat. Suddenly your child will discover that his/her paper plate is a scary witch's face.
Cut eye holes and attach ribbon or yarn for ties if he/she wants to wear it.
Great for wearing or displaying on a wall or window. Use the same mask idea for a black cat. Simply have your child add triangular ears to the plate and color it. Paper plate masks can be something your child does on a regular basis; his/her imagination is the only limit.
