In a moment of sheer lunacy or whimsy (I don't know which), I bought 36
life-sized styrofoam heads with necks for my advanced 8th grade art class.
My first intention was for them to make full head masks with paper mache,
building up with lots of celluclay for exaggerated features, etc. If I did
it in paper mache, then we could cut them up and around the sides, remove,
and have the heads saved for another class to use. My interest has waned on
that idea. A friend of mine suggested he would have them cut up the heads
(gasp!) and have them do Picasso heads with pieces placed out of whack.
Another friend suggested she would make face masks with hats attached.

Does anyone have any creative solutions to using these heads in a novel way
(other than taking 'em back to the store)? What would YOU do? Thanks for
ANY suggestions!!!

Here I sit...brainless but NOT headless......Bunki
