How to make a Dinosaur Face Mask

Updated on July 2, 2014

How to craft a Dinosaur Face Mask for Kids

Kids love dinosaurs - a simple fact. And what young child doesn't want to play at being one of these giants from the past? I know that I did as a young boy. Creating your own mask is a great way to dress-up. It helps a young child to "assume" the role of their favorite dinosaur. A great way to dress-up for Halloween or a party themed event.

I have put together this lense to enable a quick and easy selection of face masks that be handmade. So go on - why not give it a try for yourself...No need to buy an off the shelf product, after all, most of the fun to be had is in the making of them.
