Carnival is a great festivity to bring into the TEFL classroom as it translates across so many cultures. The carnival mask is easily made from a paper plate cut in half. For the eye-holes, I folded the plate and cut small triangles accordingly. Tape a stick on the back of the mask, alternatively you can thread ribbons through but for the sake of time I went with the easy option. Then all that's left is to decorate with glitter glue, paints and whatever else you can find!
(Materials needed: paper plates, scissors, disposable sticks, tape, glitter glue, paints etc.)
