20 DIY Masks | @mamamissblog #diy #masks #kidscostumes #halloween

Ever notice how much kids love dress-up?  Just a basic mask is such a great way to get little ones engaged in all types of open-ended pretend play.  It doesn’t have to be a full blown costume either – the imagination of a child can extend pretty far with just a simple pair of ears or a mask and they are transformed into a frog, a cat, a pirate, or an owl!

Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.
