Woodland Creature Masks!

Jan17

by

We’re planning a woodland fairy-themed party for my daughter who is turning six in a week so I thought I would share some of our woodland crafts with you that we’re planning to do during the party. As you probably know, not every guest at the party wants to dress up in a tutu and wings so we’ve got some options for them: Woodland creature masks! I have some pre-printed ones you can download here if you have a printer with plenty of toner:

woodsies

fox mask
owl mask
bear mask
raccoon mask

And some you can let the kids color here:

woodsies-bw

fox mask
owl mask
bear mask
raccoon mask

coloring

Coloring is our favorite pastime.

cutting

After you’ve printed them (and colored them if you’re coloring) simply cut them out. Little ones might need some help with the eye-holes (Hint: bend slightly and cut a letter x first in the eye-hole and then trim the rest, it’s easier that way.)

adding feathers

We decorated the owlet one with soft downy feathers. Just swipe with a glue stick and apply the feathers to the glue gently. There’s not much mess and the effect is adorable.

tape!

Instead of punching holes on both sides and attaching elastic string that made the mask bend around the children’s faces we opted for some branchy sticks instead. A little piece of packing tape held the stick to the mask firm and strong.

peek-a-boo!

Then out to the garden the little woodland creatures went to play!

    I would love to use these images for my sons class party. Is it okay if I print out a few of each mask for the students to color and be able to take home with them? Thanks!!!

      sure. The masks are available for download for personal (non-commercial) use. Just download, print and cut. Have a great birthday party.
