It was actually very sweet. I was paying bills (which is not my most favorite activity) and TM entertained the three littles by making them each a mask. Of course, the second he was finished with them, the littles (OK, really L.) needed, needed, to paint them RIGHT THEN.
Here are the results (construction by TM, painting by each small child.) They are held on by heavy wire making a frame on the top and back.
K. (Because of the black paint it is kind of hard to see the mask details on this one.)
G. (L. is holding it because G. wasn't feeling as though she wanted to wear it.)
