10 Printable Safari Animal Masks for Kids to colour in and assemble – a great way to kick-start your kids next dress-up session!
These hand-drawn and uniquely designed safari animal masks will inspire creativity and play! Each printable mask can be downloaded in full colour or black & white.
How to use the Safari Animal Masks:
Not only are the masks fun to make, they can facilitate play, learning and are an absolute for must any role-play scenario! They will easily fit into safari animal lesson plans for preschoolers or early years foundation stage (EYFS) and can be combined with our how-to-draw animal guides, colouring pages and crafts, to form a creative and complete animal learning experience.
Face Masks are Great for Story Telling:
With the aide of face masks, children adopt roles and use all their knowledge and early experiences to bring life to an imagined character. As the character evolves through play, the process naturally engages children in story-telling.
Face masks are also a great accompaniment to songs, rhymes and story books; adding an engaging and dynamic element to the learning experience.
DIY Safari Animal Birthday Party:
Planning a safari animal birthday party for your preschooler? children can decorate their face masks and engage in farm animal party games.
10 Printable Safari Animal Masks for Kids: Materials
White Card Stock or Paper
Elastic or Ribbon
How to Make a Safari Animal Mask:
Download the safari animal face masks onto white card stock or paper. For durability, I recommend printing onto card rather than paper.
NB: Before printing, refer to your printer settings for a suggested card weight. Most are happy to print onto card weighing less than 220 gsm.
If the Arty Crafty Kids have chosen to print the black and white set, colour in the templates with a medium of your Arty Crafty Kids choice.
Kids can be as creative as they like with the templates. Try adding cotton wool balls or painting with cotton wall balls. Collage with paper, add sequins, paint with fingertips – the options are limitless!
Preparing the Mask:
Cut out the eye holes and use a hole puncher to create space for threading on either side of the template (as suggested by the teeny tiny holes marked).
Thread a piece of elastic through one hole and secure with a double knot.
To ensure the mask fits your child, place the face mask onto your Arty Crafty Kid and thread the elastic through the second hole while they’re wearing it.
Secure with a knot.
