Kids love to make things and masks provide a great jumping off point for their imagination. Papercraft provides the structure and framework for their creativity to build on. Sometimes short attention spans and lack of direction can get in the way. Knowing this as parents ourselves, we’ve put together a range of perfect starter masks that are quicker to build and have less components than most of the masks in our expanded range. This enables the kids to enjoy making, decorating and playing with a special mask that they have made.
Making things with your kids is a fantastic way to have family fun. At each step of the enriching activity, fundamental skills develop that can be useful to children as they grow. They will feel a sense of accomplishment and pride in the fact they have made something incredible. The creation of a papercraft mask fascinates all involved, as ordinary household materials like flat paper and card become 3D masks. This activity will also be a perfect opportunity to talk to them about sustainable practice and conservation using recycled materials.
Once you have decided to make a mask, there’s no waiting for the postman to get started. You don’t need any special equipment, just a standard printer, paper, glue and card. With an instant download and materials that most parents have around the house, you can start building immediately. Each mask has an estimated build time in the product descriptions, so you’ll know how much time to allow for the fun. Choose a mask with your child from the collection below and let the adventure begin.
