Paper Plate Education
Activity: Moon Masks & Sun Masks
Press a six-inch rubber stamp depicting a stylized moon face onto a paper plate. Decorate with crayons, sparkles, etc. Cut out the two large eye holes to insure the wearer's visibility is not impeded. Staple a large rubber band to the back of the mask and secure to one's face. As a variation that excites children even more, color the masks with fluorescent crayons and wear the masks under a black light.
This activity is an adaptation of one done by the Adler Planetarium. The rubber stamp was designed by Patty Shepelak (email@example.com).
