  • Hints and tips
    • If you’re making this with very young children and are short on time, prepare all the cutting out and shapes prior to starting the activity.
    • Older children and those more confident in scissor skills will like to do the cutting out themselves.
    • Use the masks in imaginative play, making up dragon dances or as part of Chinese New Year celebrations.
