Facial expressions are often the first clues to people’s moods. Create a mask that shows a Distinct Disposition.
Have students break into small groups. Students identify a mood that kids their age usually have, such as thrilled, worried, or puzzled. What adjectives describe the features on people’s faces when they’re in this mood? How do their eyes, mouth, and eyebrows look?
Students make a mask that shows the mood their group described. Sketch a large face and hair on paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.
Draw large eyes, a nose, mouth, and other facial parts that show a Distinct Disposition. Cut out the face and eye holes with Crayola Scissors.
Cover the art area with recycled newspaper. Color the face and hair with Crayola Oil Pastels. Blend and polish the pastel colors with a finger or a bit of paper towel.
On separate paper, draw and color accent pieces such as glasses, a tiara, or a baseball cap. Cut them out and attach them to the mask with a Crayola Glue Stick.
Add details such as tears, diamonds, or sparkling eyes with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry the glue.
To wear the mask, punch holes on each side of the mask. Thread elastic through the holes and knot.
