Animals and insects are popping up everywhere in the spring. Kids at the library had fun creating their own masks of spring animals, bugs, or even made-up creatures. We used our die cut machine to make masks shapes, but all you need is an oval shape with holes cut out for eyes and an inward curve to fit around the child’s nose. Then put out various craft supplies – feathers, ear shapes, nose shapes, yarn, sequins or foam shapes. Using glue sticks can keep your table a little less messy and allow for faster drying. When the mask is finished and glue is dry, punch a hole on either side and attach yarn so you can tie it around the child’s head.
If you want to print a more defined mask, firstpalette.com has some fun mask templates.
