Mask making is always a popular activity with primary-aged kids, but older kids can enjoy it too – how colourful and creative can they make their masks?
Just print them out on A4 paper, colour them in and cut them out. Use string to create a band to hold it on your head, or stick it on an up-cycled lollypop stick and hold it up.
Below we have some different animal masks to chose from.
- Chick – perfect for Spring to celebrate new life
- Seal – become a harbour seal which is one of Scotland’s ‘Big 5’
- Badger – badgers live underground and rely on their keen sense of smell. Could you navigate like a badger when you wear the mask?
- Frog – practice your frog jumps!
- Butterfly – use your favourite colours to become a beautiful butterfly
- Basking shark – the second largest fish, but don’t worry they only eat plankton by opening their mouths very wide! What can you catch in your mouth?
- Owl – owls can almost twist their heads 360°, spin your mask around your head to copy them
