Paper Plate Mask

Parental supervision is recommended for children when using scissors.

  • Paper plate
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Yarn
  • Glue
  • Crayons, markers, glitter, and other art supplies
  • Popsicle stick


  • Hold a paper plate up to your child's face with the top surface of the plate facing him or her.
  • Lightly mark the outline of their eyes with a pencil.
  • Next, cut the eye holes in the plate. You can bend the plate slightly in two to make the initial snip for each eye.
  • Now let them decide on a "hairstyle," and help them cut the right length of yarn for the hair. They can create whatever style they desire.
  • Glue the hairstyle into place at the top of the mask.
  • Now comes the best part: decorating the mask. Here, your child can go wild!
  • Once the decorating is done, use scissors to make two small parallel horizontal snips, about half an inch apart, near the bottom of the mask. (They should be just slightly longer than the width of a popsicle stick.)
  • Thread the top of a popsicle stick through these slots to make a handle for the mask.
  • Have fun at the masquerade!
