Presidents Day Masks

Presidents Day Masks

President's day is right around the corner! Kids can get excited about celebrating presidents past and present by making a quick and easy mask. We made some Lincoln masks,  since my kids love the top hat.

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. paper plate
  2. construction paper
  3. glue
  4. craft sticks
  1. Start by gathering up your supplies. They are really quite simple. For Lincoln, we just used some white plates and black construction paper.

  2. Start by cutting out the hat and beard from the construction paper. My 5 year old liked to do this himself since he wanted to design his own. You could cut these out yourself if needed.

  3. Cut the center out of the paper plates. Have the kids glue the hat to the top and beard to the bottom of the front of the paper plate.

  4. Tape or glue the craft stick to the back of the plate behind the beard. We used tape since the glue had trouble sticking.

  5. Then your mask is ready to wear, play with and try out your best presidential faces. My kids loved learning about Lincoln as we made them, too.
