We Play - Bird Mask

Don't forget to stop by Childhood 101 We Play where you can find lots of other great play ideas....

We     Play

One of the best parts of Halloween has to be dressing up and I really like the idea of homemade costumes. This bird mask was super easy to make ..... 1/2 a paper plate, coloured paper, marker pen, elastic, glue and scissors is all you need to make this bird mask. I love how our mask turned out very Phoenix like but how about changing the colours .... Brown and Yellow could make a neat owl ... Green, Blue and Teal could make a fantastic peacock ..... Or how about lots of different colours and make you very own Rainbow bird.

Can you hear that? It is a bird calling me

Checking the mail as all kids love to do

I will have to show this to Princess as she has a pet/animal dress up day at Kinder at the end of next week and we need a costume. I think if we pair a lovely colourful mask like this with her rainbow fairy dress she will be the most beautiful bird in the room :)

Amanda - Princess will be the most beautiful bird at Kinder in her fairy dress and mask :)

Marita - Dress ups is something we need more of in this house we really don't have many

Miss Carly - I love getting mail but not the bills!

This is amazing. I love the color and the tons of feathers.

Philippa, Neevah and Liam said...

JDaniels4's Mom - it is honestly so easy to make took 20mins max including cutting all the paper up into feather shapes :)

Gorgeous. I am thinking you could make a more permanent version with felt stiffened with iron on interfacing. Hmmm... *adds it to the list of things to try!* LOL

Great idea Christie!
