Masks To Print-Out And Color
Masks As Easy As Print, Color & Cut!
Paper mask-making is so easy, it's suitable for little kids but interesting enough for tweens. Supplies are simple: crayons, scissors and some string or ribbon are about all you need. If you have glitter and glue, you can get really fancy fast. Masks are fun for a bored child to make, but if you really want to ramp things up, try it as an activity the next time you have a birthday party or sleep-over!
Here you'll find great tips and tricks for making paper masks stronger and more durable (so you can play with them longer) and for making the fit better (which really does increase the fun). Plus lots of free masks and mask designs that are ready to be printed out and colored in! There are animal faces, favorite characters, holiday designs and more.
Enough Colors for just about any Mask Maker
I was one of those kids who always went for as big a set of crayons as I was allowed. You can never have too many colors!

String works for fastening masks, but ribbon looks better and offers more comfort and security. Leave at least a 1/4" thickness of mask material between the edge of the mask and any holes or slots cut for ties. Or you can take a thin stick and glue it to one edge of your mask to make one that you hold up in front of your face.
Make sure you have scissors for kids
For left or right handed beginners, these scissors cut paper, but not skin or fabric. Over-sized handles allow children to grasp the scissors with the whole hand. Enclosed blades add safety.
