Get creative with this recycled gorilla mask!

Did you know that Gorillas spend about six hours of their day eating? They eat lots of different leaves, shoots and stems over a wide area, and the natural balance in the food chain in their mountain habitats would be disrupted without them. Celebrate these amazing animals and have fun making a gorilla mask out of recycled materials!

READ, STEADY, GO…
HAVE LOADS OF FUN!
