What to Do with Your Giraffe Mask
Here are some ideas of what to do with your giraffe mask:
- Decorate a T-shirt with giraffe spots (use brown felt pieces) for a full giraffe costume.
- Read a book about the African savannah while wearing the mask.
- Watch or act out the Lion King.
- Get some friends together and pretend you are various animals from Africa: elephants, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, and hippos. You can go in search of water or play chase!
- Take a trip to the library to check out stories or nonfiction books on giraffes. You can even give a presentation about what you’ve learned. You can use the mask as a visual aid (or wear it).
- What sound does a giraffe make? It turns out they make a bunch! Look up giraffe sounds and teach your friends!
- Wear your mask at a meal and eat a giraffe’s favorite food. What does a giraffe like to eat? Leaves! Make a leafy green salad or smoothie.
