How to make lamb masks from paper plates

Updated February 21, 2017

Celebrate spring with your kids by making a precious lamb mask out of a paper plate. You will probably have the items for this craft already on hand, and it can be put together quite simply. Lamb masks are festive crafts for Easter or other springtime celebrations, and young children will have fun pretending to be snuggly, sweet lambs. Instead of counting sheep, make your own with this easy, child-friendly mask craft.

Cut the middle part out of the paper plate, leaving behind the outer ring.

Make the lamb's ears out of construction paper. Cut a rounded ear shape from the white paper, and cut smaller rounded shapes from the pink paper. Tape the pink shapes into the centre of the white shapes, and staple or tape them onto the top of your paper plate.

Glue cotton balls all over the paper plate rim, covering it completely.

Glue or tape the ice pop stick to the bottom of the plate to use as a handle for the mask. Once it is dry, let kids hold the mask up to their faces so it looks like they are a fuzzy lamb.
