Play-Acting With Masks

Taking on a fresh persona helps your child expand his language skills and vocabulary – plus it’s just fun! Make play acting simple by creating masks out of plain paper plates. Even depicting different emotions on the plate (a sad face, a happy or concerned face) can spark conversation. Or you could make animals, characters from a book, or people you know.
