Design a decorative 3-D mask honoring a local bird.
In temperate climates, spring arrives each year with a large assortment of birds. Have students find out which colorful species are native to their area. Watch them as they search for food and prepare their nests. Students make a list and sketch the birds they see with a Crayola Fine Tip Marker and note the date. Some bird watchers keep journals year to year, and can predict the changing seasons by the arrival of key species.
To create a decorative bird mask of a local bird, students begin by making a round mound of recycled newspaper that is as large as their face. Use masking tape to hold the mound's shape.
Students flatten Crayola Model Magic in their hands until it is about 1/2 inch (2 cm) thick and large enough to cover the newspaper base. Mold it to the base. Create a beak, eyes, and other features by adding Model Magic to the bird mask. Dry.
Cover a table top with recycled newspaper. Paint the mask with Crayola Washable Paints and Brushes. Dry.
Attach beads, sequins, or other decorative items with Crayola School Glue. Rubber bands make great worms!
