Did you ever realize that sometimes you just make projects more difficult than they need to be? I’ve always liked the idea of working with masks, but couldn’t get excited over the super-simple paper plate variety. On the other hand, I didn’t have time to do spend several classes on fancy mache versions either. Enter a teacher’s last minute request, and my stash of Goldfish boxes from Costco and you have a fairly quick but fun result. I used a paper cutter to cut the 3.5″ x 7″ rectangles, and then cut the curves and eyes out with a sharp scissors. A hole punch was used to make an easy rubber band attachment. Students colored on the cardboard side with Sharpies, and then glued some shiny decals on if they wanted. That’s it, just a little prep cutting and the kids were as happy as could be!
