Make a bunch of these masks for an easy, last minute Purim Idea, or for a Where the Wild Things are party theme, or just for some fun pretend play action with your kids. It’s an imaginative book craft to go along with reading the engaging tale.
Step 1. Cut your cardboard into a face shape; cut ears, horns, eyes, nose, mouth.
Step 2. Glue all the parts together.
Step 3. I did 2 monsters so 2 faces and Max. You just have to repeat steps 1 and 2.
Step 4. Now you can paint your faces. Allow to dry.
Step 5. Glue your pasta unto your masks and allow to dry.
Step 6. Turn your mask on the other side and tape your wooden stick to the back of your mask. If you want you can glue the stick as well.
All that’s left to do is have your child take his Max costume out for a spin on Purim. For some extra inspiration, you and your child can go see the movie or read the book together or both!
Have fun! Make it magical! And “let the wild rumpus start”.
