Tape two shoeboxes together to make a box or have a small-medium box.
Get an adult to cut out square hole for face in one side.
Add extra features by taping on scrunched up newspaper with masking tape (easier to paper mache over than sellotape).
Paper mache whole box twice.
Paper mache with paper towel once over the top (gives texture and sets harder than newspaper). Use PVA glue (2 parts to 1 part water).
