    One of my reading groups is doing a play and I'd like for them to make masks. I can't seem to find any animals besides a cow. I need a chicken, sheep, horse, duck, and lion. Nothing complex, just something they can color and glue to a popsicle stick. Any ideas?

    Can they just quickly decorate a paper plate? They could just draw and color or something. I read somewhere that if you were doing readers theater, that props aren't even needed at all.

    I am not sure what is on her site, but Jan Brett has masks for the animals in her stories. www.janbrett.com

    Just for future reference: They sell paper plates that are animal shapes. Not sure what animals, but there are usually a large selection. I found them at the grocery store.

    I was going to say Jann Brett too! Doesn't DLTK or whatever it is have masks and such? I think they do.

    Paper plates are probably the easiest. It allows the kids to customize their masks. Usually I let them be as creative as they want unless they really need to stick to something more specific.
