“Stories are memory aids, instruction manuals and moral compasses.”

– Aleks Krotoski

Below are masks from stories I tell. There is the goat from the “Three Billy Goats Gruff”, the frog from “The Frog Prince”, the owl from “Owl Babies”, and the jaguar from “The Crab and the Jaguar”.  Use these masks to tell your own stories!
