If your kids like to craft, they will absolutely love this DIY foam mask activity! My kiddos love to make an Easter craft and take it over to their grandparents house on Easter Day. This year instead of the typical paint something cute or create a fun card, my son decided that he would like to make an Easter Bunny mask and wear it over to their house! He’s really into super heroes and has a few costumes all of which include…yep, superhero masks! I thought it was a great idea for my kids to make their own Easter masks. Here is how you can make cute and easy Easter Bunny Masks with your kiddos!
Easter Bunny Mask Craft For Kids
- Foam Sheets (white, pink, other colors optional)
- Elastic Cord
As you can see, the materials needed for this fun indoor activity are quite simple and can be purchased as a local craft store or dollar store. You can let your kids do this craft in the days that lead up to Easter. Alternatively, you can create an Easter mask craft kit with the materials in a plastic bag. Then just addd it to their Easter basket right next to their chocolate Easter eggs on Easter Sunday.
This is an easy craft for children of all ages. You can use a thick card stock instead of foam sheets if you prefer.
How To Make An Easter Bunny Mask:
My son decided on an Easter rabbit mask and he made an Easter bunny mask for his sister too! We went with foam for the Easter bunny masks instead of paper because the foam is much sturdier and would hold up better with the fun that they’ll have wearing them around for awhile on Easter. We started with the white foam for the bunny face. It is so easy that you don’t even need a bunny mask template. I just sketched out a typical face mask shape and cut out eye holes.
Once you have done this basic eye mask part, it is time to make the bunny ears! So we drew 2 ears on the white piece of foam that we had and 2 smaller parts of the ear on the pink foam to be the inside of the rabbits ears. Once those parts were drawn and cut out, we took our glue stick and glued the pink inside part of the ear to the white part. Then we taped the ears to the main part of the mask.
Once the ears were on, we needed some whiskers and my son wanted to go all out so he asked me to draw his rabbit a hat that he could wear! So we drew thin whiskers with a grey marker and cut out a hat on the blue foam that we had!
Once the hat was cut out, we glued it on and the bunny mask was all ready! Then we did a pink hair bow for his sister’s bunny mask.
Finally, we poked a small hole in each side of the mask about 1/3 inch from the edge. You can use a hole puncher to punch holes if you have one. Then we thread the elastic cord through the hole and tied it tight on one side. Then I tied it on the second side of the mask after he held it on his head to let me mark the perfect size.
