Thursday Crafts For Kids ~ Heart-Shaped Animal Masks


Love can come in many disguises, but none will be as adorable as these animal masks. Super easy to make and perfect for ages 4 and up.

What you’ll need:

Poster board



Tongue depressor or paint stirrer

How to make it:

Using a sheet of poster board, cut out two heart shapes large enough to cover a child’s face. To make sure they’re the same size, use the first cut-out as a guide to trace the second cut-out. Next, cut eyeholes in each, making sure the holes line up when you press the two pieces together.

Glue the two pieces together, sandwiching a tongue depressor or paint stirrer between them.

Using this basic shape, add elements to make various animal masks. To make a dog mask, for example, trace your child’s shoes and cut them out to make floppy ears. A small heart makes the nose, a spot goes around the eye and a tongue completes the look.

Don’t forget to inscribe an endearment on the opposite side.
