Bee made this mask from the book Make Your Own Masks (a Do It Yourself Projects! series book). I recommend the book, and imagine the whole series is worthwhile as well. They were only just published in April – so there aren’t a lot of reviews out there yet.
The first mask was this one – It came with an informative little overview of how The Day of the Dead is celebrated in Brazil and Mexico (a celebration of people’s lives on Earth). Each mask has a background like this. Bee wants to make the Egyptian mask and the Greek Medusa next. I think our library stocked up on the series in preparation for this year’s summer reading program – which has a focus on creativity.
We are big fans of the summer reading program, and gearing up for a good year.
