Elephant Mask

You can tell this gorgeous elephant mask is of an Indian elephant because of his colourful head-dress and his ears! Fun for kids to make and wear!

Elephant mask

You will need:

Large paper plate
Grey paint
Grey card
Coloured paper
Decoration (we used 3D paint and gems you can use whatever you have to hand)
Glue
Thin elastic

Instructions:

Paint the back of the paper plate grey and leave to dry.

When the paint is dry cut out your eye holes.

From grey card cut a trunk and two ears, remembering that Indian elephants have small ears.

Glue the ears to opposite sides of the face and the trunk to the middle.

Cut out a triangle of coloured paper for the head-dress and glue it to the plate so the point sits between the eyes. Decorate the coloured paper with bits from your craft box.

Make a small hole in either side of the face. Tie a piece of elastic through.
