You might remember from a previous post that the chosen theme was "pirate-mermaid-superhero", or as was pointed out by a mate of mine "PMS". Nice.
So, as part of the superhero bit we made a few batman type masks for the kids to wear. I've seen lots of masks made from plastic gallon milk containers about on the web, but it crossed my mind that if I incorporated the sides of the container and folded them up on themselves then they would make nifty bat ears, so after pestering freinds to save thier milk containers for me, I cut out a load with an exacto knife and then sprayed them black with some plastic spray paint. A bit of elastic to hold them on and Voila!
