Australian Aboriginal Mask Craft

Printable pattern for aboriginal mask craft

January 26th is Australia Day! Kids learn about Australia as they make their own Australian Aboriginal mask. Aboriginal  artists used dots of color in their paintings. Experiment with this style by using natural colors to decorate printable masks. This would be a fun exercise for Girl Scouts Thinking Day.

There is a Didgeridoo on the Australian Crafts page to go with your mask.

Trivia
