Craft Thursday With Lisa Lopez: Lion Mask CraftWe would like to welcome crafter Lisa Lopez to our team here at Growing Your Baby. Lisa has been the resident ‘craft specialist’ over at Petite Planet for quite some time now and we thank them for sharing her with us!

Kid’s love using their imaginations and playing dress up. This craft allows you to make an easy animal mask using simple supplies that you have around the house. I am showing how to make a lion. But you could also make tiger’s, frog’s, or even a bunny for Easter. The possibilities are endless. Here’s how:

Items you will need:

  • Paper plates- the inexpensive plain paper one’s work well.
  • Paints/brushes
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • glue stick
  • rubber bands
  • colored paper

Craft Thursday With Lisa Lopez: Items you need

1.First you will cut out basically the top half of the paper plate. Making a spot for the nose as I have done.
Then you need to cut out holes for the eyes.

3. Then using colored paper, trace out pieces that you will use for the mane of the lion. Also making a small nose and ears.

5.  Once dry, use your hole punch to punch a hole on each side of the mask. This is where the rubber band will loop through.

6.  Loop the rubber band through the holes, this is what you will hook onto your child’s ear to hold the mask in place.
