Curiosity Club: Majestical Unicorns

Our first week is the Fantastic and Majestic Unicorn!  My love for unicorns began when I was 9 years old and my dad gave me a painted pewter unicorn as a gift. Since then I’ve received many, many Unicorn themed presents.  I show you a few of them in the video!

Unicorn Masks

If you missed picking up one of our Unicorn Craft Kits at the Monday Farmers Market, here is something similar!  This cool tutorial from Crayola uses a paper plate.

Supplies

  • Paper plates
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Crayons/markers
  • Decorations (use your imagination! Sequins, yarn, fabric scraps…)

Directions

Once you cut the inner circle out of your plate you are ready to decorate. Add ears, a horn and whatever else you think will make your unicorn unique!  You can add a popsicle stick to hold it up to your face OR a piece of paper around the back if you want to wear it, for a hands free look!

Ask your parents to share a picture of your mask on Facebook/TopekaLibrary and use #curiosityclub #adventuremobile. Share on Instagram too!
