Making your own mask is pretty cool so grab one of our printable silly paper masks and let the kids each pick out their favorite.
The most light-hearted day of the year – April Fools’ Day is near, so we made these silly masks for you to wear and play funny jokes everywhere you go.
We are super excited to follow you through the steps of assembling your mask, so let’s start.
How to Make Silly Paper Masks
What you need:
- stretch yarn
Step by Step Instructions
Print out our templates provided at the end of this post.
You can use the color versions or the black and white ones and then color them with colors of your choice.
Cut out the mask shapes.
You can make a small hole before continuing with scissors to help yourself with cutting the holes out.
Using your scissors, make holes for the eyes where marked.
Cut them out nicely.
Do this with all the masks if you’re making more of them at the same time.
Take the toothpick and make holes through the black dots on each side.
Thread some stretch yarn through one hole (start from the back side of the mask) and make a firm knot.
Measure around your head so you know what length you need the yarn to be, then cut it out.
Thread the other stretch yarn’s end through the second hole and tie a firm knot.
Done! This wasn’t a demanding project, right?
Now go put your mask on! See how funny you look!
Get ready to trick your family, friends, and neighbors and have a silly laugh!
Maybe you can host a high-spirited party at your house too.
After that, feel free to write and tell us what were the silliest pranks you made for April Fools’ Day.
