Tiger poems and stories seem almost real when you make this mask. Decorate it with authentic tiger markings.
Share a variety of read alouds with students focused on tigers. How are these magnificent animals described in stories, poetry, and nonfiction? Have students look closely at pictures of tigers' interesting stripes and markings. Why are tigers marked this way?
To create their own decorative mask (for display, rather than to wear), students begin by sketching a tiger's head, stripes, and facial features, such as whiskers, with Crayola® Washable Markers. Use Crayola Scissors to cut out the head.
Flatten white Crayola Model Magic until it is as large as each student's sketch. Students place sketches on top of the Model Magic and trace around the facial shape with a marker. Cut out the tiger mask.
Students crumple up recycled newspaper to place under the mask, giving it a 3-D, rounded shape. Form ears and other facial features from Model Magic. Add or trim as needed.
Add a hanging loop on the back of each mask by attaching a thick coil of Model Magic to the upper edge. Dry.
Students cover their work area with recycled newspaper. Paint masks with Crayola Tempera Paints. Ask students to look closely at their sketches and pictures of tigers' faces to make them authentic. Dry and display!
When children wear hand-crafted costumes and masks make sure the craft does not obstruct the child's vision or impede movement, and keep away from open flames.
