Kids of all ages can make Batman masks and enjoy decorating them with a little help. The bat masks can be a craft for a Halloween party or school activity to help kids get into the Halloween spirit.

  1. 1

    Print and cut out a bat mask template (see Resources). Or, if you are feeling artistic, draw your own bat on the craft foam or construction paper. Make it large enough to fit across your face. If you are using the template, trace it onto the foam or paper and cut it out with scissors.

  2. 2

    Decorate the bat mask. Decide whether you want the bat mask to go above your eyes or over your eyes. If it's going above your eyes and not obscuring them, glue two red rhinestones to the bat's face where the eyes should be. If you are wearing the mask over your eyes, use the scissors to create eye holes that are large enough to see clearly from. Use glitter glue to jazz up your bat mask even more if desired.

  3. 3

    Punch a hole in either side of the mask using a hole punch. Measure a length of elastic long enough to fit over your head with an extra couple of centimetres to spare. Thread elastic through the holes and tie a knot in each hole. Try the mask on and make sure it fits. Adjust if necessary.
