How to Make Rainforest Masks

If you are teaching young children about the different biomes in nature, you can make the lesson more interesting and exciting by showing the kids how to make a craft related to the material. For example, if you are teaching the children about the rainforest biome, show the kids how to construct a mask that symbolises the rainforest that they can make and wear while you teach. This will enable the kids to become more involved in learning about the rainforest.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Place a blank craft mask onto a sheet of newspaper on a table top, and paint the front of the mask using bright green acrylic paint. Allow the mask to dry for 20 minutes.

  2. 2

    Spray the painted mask with spray adhesive and sprinkle green glitter over the adhesive. Allow the adhesive to dry for five minutes, then shake off the excess glitter.

  3. 3

    Insert a hot glue stick into the back of a hot glue gun, and plug in the hot glue gun to heat up for five minutes.

  4. 4

    Squeeze a line of hot glue around the perimeter of the craft mask, and press silk greenery onto the hot glue. This will create a border of rainforest foliage around the mask. Allow the hot glue to cool for two minutes.

Tips and warnings

  • Use hot glue guns under adult supervision only.
  • Keep hot glue out of the reach of children. Hot glue can cause serious burns.
