Making masks for kids is a fun and creative project. Kids' masks are great for holidays, parties or an after-school activity. It's important to use safe products, such as non-toxic glue and paint, when making masks. To make a kid's mask, you need a paper plate, a pair of sunglasses, a string, a pencil, safety scissors, glue and decorations.
Cut eye holes in the paper plate
Use a pair of sunglasses and a pencil to mark where you want the eye holes to be on the paper plate. Use scissors to cut out the marked eye holes. Kids should use safety scissors if cutting is necessary. An adult should always supervise kids' activities.
Make holes on the sides of the mask
Use a pencil to mark two holes, one on each side of the mask. Push the pencil through the marks to make the holes.
Tie a string through the holes
Tie the end of a piece of string through a hole and the other end through the second hole. The string will keep the mask secure to the kid's head.
Decorate the mask
The fun part of making a mask is decorating it. Allow the kid to use safe craft tools to decorate the mask. Feathers, beads and finger paint make great decorations.
