We also used markers to color model magic and then I brought in lots of
matchbox cars I got at garage sales. We covered the cars with a base of
model magic then transformed the cars out of our imaginations. I had a
baseball car, a butterfly car, a jet plane car, a ladybug, etc. Boys and
girls both had fun.
Also cut out masks out of foam, (I got 6 to a sheet) and cut the scraps with
zigzag scissors. We decorated by building up layers of foam scraps with
tacky glue and sequins. Lots of fun. I did a whole mask thing on it. I
used some of the info off the newsgroup here on different masks and their
purposes; like concealment, disguise, protection, beauty and religion. Nice
unit. I think Rosa from the North was post-er, but you could get it from
archives. Hope this helps and by all means use Maryann Kohl's books. They
are my "bible."
