Kids love masquerade parties because they're fun and entertaining. These celebrations are a perfect way to make kids happy on their birthdays, on Halloween, and during Mardi Gras events.

Materials that you need to get started:
Printable card stock
Scissors
Crayons or poster paint
White glue
Disposable chopsticks or dowel
White glue
Glitter glue
Feathers
Glue gun (optional)
Extra materials for decorative purposes: rhinestones, puffy paint, sequins, aluminum foil, ribbons, etc.

Select your template
Does your child have a special template in mind? Some of the most common shapes for masquerade masks only cover the eye area. Kids usually want to be famous characters like Batman, or ferocious animals such as lions and bears. Listen to their requests and print out their favorite shape on a card stock. Cut out the mask and don't forget to make holes for the eyes. If you want to make a multi-colored mask, sketch the design in order to ease the coloring process.

Tips for painting a masquerade mask
Multi-colored masks are great for kids. Perfect for festivities and all kinds of themed parties, these disguises should feature metallic colors such as silver and gold. Many DIY masks curl at the edges. To prevent this happening you must not add water into the paint. In case the card stock or paper is not thick enough, you should glue the template on a cardboard. If you're not that fond of paint, use crayons or oil pastels to craft the most amazing masquerade mask for your beloved kids.

Add spark with glitter glue
Masquerade masks should look amazing, especially because their main purpose is to make kids happy. Sprinkle a lot of glitter all over the mask, and use white glue to fixate the glitter. Shake off the leftovers and let the mask dry for a few hours. Add some more decorative materials to really make the mask stand out. Use rhinestones, plastic gems, sequins, and gem-style stickers.
