Trickster Masks!

This activity was designed to create masks that changed as you wore them - from the simplest of transformations with tissue cocoons being ripped off to reveal butterflies, to olds and flaps that opened (treebark, revealing owl faces) or whole masks that changed from animal into human.....

These were inspired by the masks of the North-west coast Native American cultures....

The worksheet is from a set that accompanied the book Talking to the Earth. The book -with lots more activities! - is still available from either myself ( Toadsite for books ) or the publishers, Capall Bann
