This is an easy way to make mask that kids love. It is important to note however that safety experts discourage the use of masks with Halloween costumes as they can limit a child’sight line and decrease their visibility.
What you will need:
•Paper and a printer (colored card-stock works very well)
•Markers or crayons
•Elastic-about 1 foot per mask.
Directions for the project-You print out mask templates from the internet or for some creative fun have the kids design their own masks on the cardstock. Animal masks are highly popular with kids such as: Koala, cat, lion, dog and pig. Have the kids color the mask and then cut it out around the edges. After all the cutting is finished then cut out the eye holes. Staple one end of the elastic onto the mask about the level of the eye holes. Then you must determine how much elastic it will take to fit on your child’s head. Trim to size. Staple the remaining side of the elastic to the other side of the mask and it is ready to wear. .
