Four quick and easy book-inspired masks
If your child has come home and given you a day's notice that they have a dress up tomorrow, don't panic. When it comes to dress ups, we've got you covered. The best way to fudge a fantastic dress up is to start with a mask. And masks are EASY!
Here are four easy-peasy masks inspired by famous books.
Below you will find each mask individually listed with their full instructions and video tutorials.
1. The Cat in the Hat
If it's the hat that's always spooked you on this one, fear not. This 'hat' is a hat that is not actually a hat, if you get my drift. Fake it until you make it, add a black dressing gown belt as a tail and a red scarf tied at the neck as the bow. Ready, set, parade!
2. The Very Hungry Caterpillar
It's all in the surprised 'o' of the mouth and the antennae. Pssst, it's just a paper plate painted red ... plus some other crafty bits and bobs. Add a green onesie and you're ready to munch.
3. Fantastic Mr Fox
This one comes with a free printable, in case you're challenged in the drawing department. Don't forget, he's a dandy that Mr Fox. Must add three piece suit or equivalent: houndstooth of course.
4. Where The Wild Things Are
It's de rigueur these days for kids to come as Max in his wolf suit. But how awesome are those Wild Things? Make your child into a Wild Thing with this easy paper plate mask.
