Summary

Carnival masks for Mardi Gras. I made this for the art teacher. She wanted a mask that was more durable than paper and wouldn't need to be painted. Masks were printed in green, gold, and purple. The 3rd graders decorated them with glitter, feathers, sequins, stickers, etc.

The models shown have a 3 mm hole which is a good fit for the bamboo skewers and sandwich toothpicks pictured, which are from the supermarket. Skewers and toothpicks come in all sizes, so check the fit before you print a bunch of models. If you're worried about handing the children pointy sticks remember to cut off the points ahead of time.

I also included a model with a handle attached.

Lesson Plan and Activity

  1. 3D print the masks in a variety of colors. Purple, gold, and green are the traditional colors.

  2. Firmly embed the bamboo skewers in the masks to make a handle. Best to have an adult do this step. Don't leave any pointy bits laying around.

  3. Have the students decorate the masks. Tacky glue works well. Let the glue dry overnight.

  4. Have a parade! Or a party!

Project: Mardi Gras Carnival Mask

Objective

Students will decorate a carnival mask for a Mardi Gras celebration

Audience

This was a 3rd grade art project.

Preparation

Collect the materials the students will use to decorate their masks. We used tacky glue to attach the decorations to the 3D printed masks. Get bamboo skewers from the grocery store and cut off the points.

Steps

  1. 3D print the masks in a variety of colors. Purple, gold, and green are the traditional colors.

  2. Firmly embed the bamboo skewers in the masks to make a handle. Best to have an adult do this step. Don't leave any pointy bits laying around.

  3. Have the students decorate the masks. Tacky glue works well. Let the glue dry overnight.

  4. Have a parade! Or a party!

Results

This project was successful. The students were able to make fun decorated carnival masks and have a parade through the school hallways.
