Magazine clippings make for mighty masks in this theatre craft. These easy-to-make masks look hilarious. Kids will get a good chuckle out of this indoor craft.

What You'll Need:

  • Several old magazines to cut up
  • Scissors
  • Thin paper plates
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Yarn

How to Make Mighty Masks:

Step 1: Leaf through old magazines, and cut out individual facial features from pictures of faces. Divide them into piles of ears, noses, eyebrows, chins, hair, heads, etc. Don't forget animal faces!

Step 2: Cut eye and mouth holes out of a paper plate. Pick out a goofy arrangement of facial features, and glue them onto the plate to make a mask. Let the glue dry.

Step 3: Punch holes in the sides of the mask with a pencil. Tie a piece of yarn to the hole on each side to hold the mask on your head. Admire the crazy results.
