These monster masks are the most fun and super easy to make, they are the perfect activity for a kids birthday party. We have made them many times in the past at our kids craft classes and they are always a big hit. I love that the process is very open-ended, the children can get creative and make monsters, robots, animals or whatever their imagination can dream up!
If you love this project but don't have the materials, check out our fun kids CRAFTS BOXES, our COLLAGE CREATIVE CRAFT BOX includes all the materials you need to make these MONSTER MASKS plus lots of other fun crafts.
- Brown paper bags (20x30cm approx.)
- Paper to collage
- Marker pens
- Glue - PVA or glue sticks
- Craft knife
- Extra items to decorate like feathers, yarn or stickers (optional)
To cut the eye hole in the brown paper bags, insert a cutting mat or thick piece of cardboard into the bag and cut a rectangle shape at eye level using a craft knife. You may also need to trim a bit off the length of your bag depending on the size of the kids head. Then create your monster face by sticking on paper shapes. I pre-cut the paper collage shapes making it easier for little kids just to start gluing. Older kids could cut their own shapes to collage.
