Kids Halloween craft: Venetian Mask

This project will help your child to develop his cutting (motor) skills, improve his creativity, and give him a sense of accomplishment.
It is suitable for children 3-5 years old.

This “venetian” style mask can be a great addition to a variety of Halloween or masquerade costumes. It is very easy and inexpensive to make, and you and your kids can decorate it in a variety of ways: draw a pattern with markers, use glitter glue or sparkles, glue fake lashes to the top of the eye holes - just use your imagination. Instead of regular construction paper you could use a “velvet” type, which will give the mask a much more professional look. To make your mask more durable, use a cardstock paper or glue your mask to the same shape cut out of thin cardboard.

Materials:

1. Printout of the mask
2. Construction paper
3. String or thread
4. Scissors
5. Toothpick
6. Cardboard (optional)
7. Glue or glue stick (optional)
8. Glitter glue or sparkles for decoration (optional)

Cut the half of the mask shape out of the printout (click the image below to download the printout in PDF format).
