You will need:
- Our downloadable template
- Sticky tape
- Lollipop stick or paper straw
- Pens, pencils or any other items to decorate your mask
Download and print our butterfly mask template, then carefully cut it out.
Stick the mask on to some cardboard (an old cereal box is perfect).
Cut around the mask again, and then carefully cut the eye holes out. Ask an adult to help you with this bit as it can be tricky.
Now it's the fun bit. Decorate your mask however you like. You could use felt tips, scraps of paper, ribbon - anything you like!
Tape a lollipop stick or drinking straw to your mask to make a handle so you can hold your mask in front of your face. Or you could punch two holes at either side of your mask and attach some string or elastic.
