Paper (a few sheets of white 9×12″ recommended)
Crayons (markers or color pencils are fine too)
A few (2-5) standard balloons
A lot of newspaper or newsprint paper (the paper will need to be cut into roughly 2×6″ strips and you will need to have enough to cover an entire inflated balloon multiple times as well as cover external features on the mask multiple times)
Acrylic paint (red, yellow, blue, white and black recommended)
Paintbrushes (small and large)
A water container/plastic cup and a large mixing bowl
Paper mache mixture made in a large bowl and there are two options available, please pick the one that suits you best: Option 1: You will need a large bag of flour, or Option 2: You will need a large 1 gallon container of elmer’s glue (can be white school glue or glue-all).
