Kids Mask Crafts
Here at Ruffles and Rain boots, I love pretend play and crafty fun. Anytime we find a craft that we know you’ll love, I can’t wait to share all the details. This list of masks is too good to keep to ourselves – everyone is different and adorable in their own way.
Over the years, I’ve shared a few masks here on the site. Masks help to encourage pretend play, create a scene for a dramatic performance, and even work in a pinch for Halloween. Some of our most popular paper masks are:
- paper dragon mask printable – Use the same printable three different ways to create some really awesome dragons
- unicorn mask printable – My daughter loves dragons and unicorns equally, so they’re equally represented here. Again, you can use the same printable multiple ways to encourage more creative play.
I’ve gathered up some super cute mask crafts for kids that will instantly have them showing off their new look! Let’s get started.

Tips for Making DIY Kids Masks
- Let the kids branch off and make them their own. All kids are creative and can find a fun way to make an epic mask.
- These are great for Halloween ideas as well as fun birthday party crafts for the kids. Unicorns, dragons, and other themes are represented but if your little one wants to make an airplane or gnome, let their imagination run wild.
- If you don’t have exactly what the tutorial is asking for, start with a paper plate. I have found that a paper plate can make a pretty good mask for a little one in a pinch.
How Hard are These Masks to Make?
These masks are kid-friendly. There are some harder parts if very small hands are working on them and parental guidance is always suggested for all ages. Most 5 year old and older kids will be able to take over and do the majority of the work but we’ve had three year olds do just fine with a little help.
