MAKING PAPER MACHE MASKS
We decided to make some paper mache mask's, so I sent Mr B to the shops to get the items while I cleared the table and got Alesha ready.
When Mr B returned we got the brushes and glue ready, ripped up some tissue and newspaper, blew up the balloons and then we sat at the table with Alesha.
Alesha was trying to help daddy whilst doing her's, daddy was trying to stop Alesha's mask from falling onto the floor, it was crazy!
But it settled down and it went well, Alesha was very well behaved (so was daddy). We got the balloons covered and set aside to dry.
We put Alesha to bed that night and we finished them off with a few more layers to make them nice and hard for the morning.
The following day I cut out the eye and mouth holes, Mr.B put string on them and we set the table so we could paint them.
We spent an hour painting them and finishing them off, they all came out really well.
Simple things make kids happy!
