Zak, T.J and Max in their bird masks.
Today we made bird masks. The masks were inspired by the birdman's song in Mozart's opera The Magic Flute. We have been listening to Classical Kids version of the opera and the boys fell in love with the birdman,Papageno. They wanted to learn his song and to go along with the song of course you must have a mask. An opera with out a mask is no opera at all.

T.J., Zak, Me, and Max
I even got in on the fun and made a mask for myself.

Max's Mask
We each picked out a different mask pattern. Max chose this pattern.

Zak chose this pattern.

T.J. used this pattern and I this one.

To Begin:
  1. Cut out the pattern.
  2. glue on feathers and sequins or beads.
  3. Let dry thoroughly.
  4. make a hole on each side and pass a ribbon through the hole. Tie a knot and then fasten to your head.
For a good turtorial on making a bird mask with paper check out this one.
