Materials
§  A4 or Letter size card stock
§  Crayons, paint, or any coloring material
§  Scissors
§  Hole punch
§  Elastic string
§  Scotch tape
§  Craft stick (optional)
Steps
Pick the animal mask that you like and print it out on A4 or Letter size card stock:
·         Bunny Mask
·         Lion Mask
·         Monkey Mask
·         Tiger Mask

*You can print out the mask on regular paper but you will need to glue the mask onto card board to make it stiffer.
1. Color or paint the animal using your favorite coloring material. If you chose to print out a colored animal mask, skip this step.
2. Cut out the mask. Ask an adult to help you cut out the eye holes.
3. Notice the pair of little circles on each side of the mask? These are the spots where you need to punch holes for attaching the string. Paper masks normally tear around these holes after a few uses. To reinforce these spots, put scotch tape over the marked holes and fold the tape towards the back of the mask.
4. Punch holes on the pair of marked circles and tie the ends of an elastic string on each hole.
5. Try on your animal mask. It should fit snugly but not too tight. Adjust the length of the string if necessary.
