Fun and Easy Mask Crafts for Children

Kids love paper mask activities


One of the most enjoyable kid crafts I've found is making paper craft masks. Children love to make masks for any reason, whether to mimic characters in a favorite book or video, for party activities, for holiday celebrations such as Halloween and Mardi Gras or for simple costume play.

Kids mask crafts are wonderful creative arts and crafts, and they're inexpensive. Often you can make a mask from recycled materials - so you're making crafts that are also green.

If you want to make a specific type of mask, you can find unique printable masks and mask templates available online or in books, free to print or copy for personal use or to use for classrooms and club activities. We've collected a list of free printable paper masks ... keep on reading for the links and a free mask download.

Mask Crafts Materials and Supplies

Use nontoxic supplies and recycled materials to make craft masks with children

Mask crafts are versatile and non-toxic when you work with kid safe materials. We like to craft masks from clean heavy weight paper, card stock, recycled cereal cartons and paper plates.

Decorate children's mask crafts with fabric or paper scraps, buttons, stickers, markers, paints, craft feathers, sequins, dried pasta, flowers or anything else you have on hand in the craft supply bin or cupboard. Tear up old colorful magazine pages to create paper bits to stick onto a mask. Use bits of yarn or shoelaces  to create ear loops.

Kids are creative artists and will enjoy making paper masks fron any clean safe paper source and embellishing materials you provide. Be sure to use non-toxic paints and glues and if you create eye or face masks, attach them to a stick or make ear loops to hold a mask onto a child's face.
