Internet Resources for Masks
Sometime ago a website visitor called me to inquire where she could to purchase elastic mask holders, those metal or plastic tipped elastic strings that fit through the side holes to keep the masks on the face. It occurred to me that it would probably be easier (and cheaper) to go to a fabrics store and pick up a roll of elastic strips. That way you can cut individual lengths and simply knot each end onto the paper masks.
These are links to some interesting and fun, free child craft and mask paper activity resources on the Internet.
