My sister’s family and I have been having fun celebrating my nieces birthday, turning the big 4. When she was asked what she wanted to make, she replied dinosaurs, so everything became dinosaurs.. no unicorns to be seen!
Here’s what you would need to make a dinosaur mask
paper plate painted green
a circle cutter (you can get these from most good stationers, and they’re easy to use)
two colours of paint, we used blue and yellow mainly
a plastic straw - we used a reusable drinking straw, it can just get washed in the dishwasher after and be used as a straw again!
Step by step
paint the plates green and let them dry for twenty mins/ half an hr
cut out your eye holes. I drew a rulered line along the back to cut my eyes on so that they would be even
cut the mask in half, below your eye holes, you should have a slightly generous top half for your mask
cut up the shapes for the dino ears, and two pieces that make up his nose
put out a couple of pots of paint, with small paint brushes and let the children add spots and pattern to decorate the masks. and then let dry, ( you can use a hair dryer to quicken up the drying)
using pritt stick, stick on the ears, and two nose pieces
using cellotape attach the straw to the back.
You’re finished! What do Dino’s go?…… tweet tweet? ( keep the noice down a bit:) )
