Foil Masks

foil-masksSince theater began in Ancient Greece, we decided to make some foil masks. We’ve made many masks over the years. This time we used aluminum foil. We folded it in half, and then in half again, to make a skinny line of foil. We cut out the eyes by doing a V-shape against the edge of the fold. Then the children could shape the head any way they wanted. My kids all wanted ovals except for my oldest son, who designed his own shape with Sharpie marker. When he did this, the foil was only folded once, not twice. We colored the foil masks with markers. My 5-year-old girl made two. Nobody wanted to make a sad face. (You know, the symbol of theater is two masks, one happy for comedy and one sad for tragedy.) Anyway, my oldest son’s mask looked like it belonged in Ancient Greece!foil-masks-2foil-masks-3foil-masks-4
