This was a useful activity for my daughter because she is only 4 and still learning how to make friends. We talked about what face you should make when you meet people and about how they will not feel like being your friend if you show them a sour or grumpy face, or look down and ignore them. This “friendly face” mask reinforces how smiling makes people feel welcome. Miss K was proudly walking around with her mask all afternoon.You can find lots more paper plate crafts on my Paper Plates board in Pinterest.

Thanks for the review and the craft. I’ve purchased the book and we’ve just made the friendly face mask for F week in my home preschool program. I’m looking forward to reading more ideas for incorporating character building into our learning and play.
