Paper Plate Masksprint resource
Animal masks are a fun way to let kids be creative and have something to take home and play with! We made these on our day talking about animals and how they interact... After making the masks, we had them play tag, where each animal that was a 'predator' had to tag its 'prey' that it would normally hunt in its environment. Then, we had them switch roles and the 'prey' got its chance to be the 'predator.'
- paper plates
- extra blank pieces of paper
- pipe cleaners
To make the masks, you will need to cut out eye holes in the middle of a paper plate, and two holes on the side to poke string through and tie it at the end... For the mask itself, you can cut it to make the face of the animal more like itself - or you can just use crayons and markers to get the effect you want. For ears and extra things on the face (such as an elephant trunk or cat whiskers) you can use cut-out pieces of paper, pipe cleaners for whiskers, or anything else you can imagine useful!!
