Mask Ideas For Kids Birthday Parties

Certain types of masks are really simple to make. DIY projects are the perfect chance for parents to bond with their little ones too. Here are some pointers you might want to consider for a themed birthday party.

Pillowcase party mask

Try an easy pillowcase party mask. For this project to become a successful one, you need a used pillowcase, ribbons, thread and a needle, scissors, and some extra pieces of material to create a face onto the pillowcase. One of the simplest ideas is to create a ghost mask. For this you need a white pillowcase and scissors. Cut the material in round shapes in the eye and mouth area; as an alternative, you can use paint to make funny drawings on the pillowcase.

Lion mask made from recycled paper

Kids love animals. When they’re little, they want to be cats, pumas, dogs, and of course lions. Lions are ferocious but they’re also cute and strong. For this lion mask idea you first need a lion shape (download a model from the web, there are loads of templates). Then, you must draw the shape onto a cardboard (the thicker the better). Use an old box for example, but first you might want to spray it with a glue to make it more durable.

Now it’s time to start the painting process. Allow the kids to participate in the DIY project. Let them pick the colours, and use extra elements to make the lion mask look as real as possible. For example, use rubber pieces for eyebrow and mustache, or a different material for the ears (such as velvet for example). Have fun while doing this and you’ll make your child feel useful and happy too.

Kitten mask
Kittens are fluffy and adorable. Since you probably can’t get your child a real kitten for their birthday, you can compensate with a cat mask. A DIY cat mask project doesn’t call for a lot of effort.

Apart from imagination, you need: black fabric, thread and a needle, a different type of material for the mustaches and ears (leather for example), scissors, glue, paint. Begin with printing a cat shape from the web, and then use it to cut the black fabric. Use the glue or the thread and needle to attach the mustaches and the ears, and the paint to make the eyes. To make the mask look special, add some glitter or rhinestones to give it an original appeal.

Skull mask
A scary skull mask for a themed birthday party will certainly become a memorable event in the life of your little one. Check the web for a skull pattern; consult with your child and allow him to select a model. Then print it on a large cardboard. Use a pair of scissors to cut the cardboard in the shape of the skull, and use an elastic strap to tie the mask allowing your kids to run and play freely.
