Instructions

  1. 1

    Cut a piece of craft foam into the shape you want it to be. You can make it round or cut out animal features such as ears.

  2. 2

    Hold the mask up to your child's face to determine where the eye holes should be. Mark them and cut them out.

  3. 3

    Decorate the masks according to what animal your child wants to be. Glue on pipe cleaners for whiskers or draw on a mouth and facial features like tiger stripes or a cat nose. Cut out additional pieces of foam and glue those on to add interest for ears or a mouth.

  4. 4

    Glue a craft stick to the foam to use as a handle for the mask. Now your child can hold it up to their face and pretend to be their favourite pet or zoo animal.
