Dress up and crafts are my favorite ways to keep the kids imaginations going. Owls are  so popular right now I figured I would try to make a owl mask for Shae to use for dress up or storytelling or just because.

I drew out a design and used it to help Shae create this cute Owl Masquerade Mask.

Supplies

  • Card stock to print your Owl Mask
  • Scissors
  • Crayons, markers or paint to color your mask(or print on colored card stock)
  • Embellishments such as feathers, glitter glue, sequins, tissue paper, etc
  • School glue and/or tape
  • Popsicle stick to use as handle

Directions
Print your owl mask template.

You may want to adjust size to suit your child’s face. Mark with a crayon/marker here your child’s eyes will be. Cut out mask and quarter size eye holes. Cut out an additional small triangle for the nose. Lightly crease it down the middle and attach it to the back of the mask, pointing down. This allows some room for your child’s nose.

Let your child decorate as they wish, make sure they don’t cover eye holes. Attach popsicle stick to back of mask using glue or tape.
Now let your child transform into a spooky or whimsical owl.

Modifications
By simply restricting the embellishments this craft is suitable for little ones as young as 18 months. Extending the owls points will give a more dramatic look. Instead of a popsicle stick attach ribbon or string for a mask that needs to be tied on.

Next step is to design and construct an owl costume.
