Make Your Own Dinosaur Mask
It’s make a dino Monday and today I’m sharing a video on making dinosaur masks. Okay, so many of my readers are a little too old to be walking around in dinosaur masks but I happen to know that quite a few of you have kids and what better way to bond than sharing a love of dinosaurs. Plus, making these masks is a great way to keep the kiddos busy on those upcoming rainy fall days.
Making a Dinosaur Mask With Help From Little Rays Puppetry
Chances are that if you’re a dinosaur fiend then you already have a dinosaur species in mind for your little one to make…although they make have a species of their own in mind so take note when you get your supplies ready!
Supplies You Need For Your Dinosaur Mask
- 1 paper plate
- 1 pen
- 1 stapler
- Tissue paper circles
If you are like me then you’ll probably do better watching the video instruction above by Little Rays Puppetry. Corina Bona is a professional prop and puppet maker and she does a great job pulling these masks together. My favorite thing about these masks is that you don’t have to be neat and you can be just as creative as you want to be which makes this a great project for kids of all ages. Okay, so may be my other favorite thing is that I get to make my own mask while “helping” the kids make their masks. You can even pull out extra crafting supplies and make add on features like a cranial crest or horns and frills to make the most accurate dinosaur masks possible. Some of my favorite dinosaur species for dinosaur mask making are: Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Styracosaurus and Dilophosaurus.
