Cut out the mask

Preschool Activities: 

Paint the beak orange and the comb red. Drill the holes for the eyes with the scissors. NOTE: Make them large enough to see through. With the black marker draw a thick black circle around the eyes.

Preschool Activities: 

You can keep the mask as is but we wanted to give her some eye lashes. (NOTE: Real chickens don't have eye lashes, their eyes are very similar to that of a Fish, but with a hard eyelid.) 

Cut two small rectangles out of black paper and make some cuts to one side. Glue piece to the eye sockets. When dry, bend the lashes upwards. 

Preschool Activities: 

With scissors drill a hole to each side of the mask. 

Preschool Activities: 

Drill a hole to each side with the scissors. Then, attach the elastic band.
