These make a great, easy kids craft as well as a fun craft for a jungle themed party. I also have a quick video tutorial for the printable bird mask below.
You can download the free version of the printable masks below, or you can grab the full-colored version of the toucan mask here in my Etsy shop.
You can print of the masks here:
I recommend printing on cardstock if you want them to hold up well. You can also use the printable as a template to cut the masks out of construction paper.
You can see an easy video tutorial for how to put together the toucan mask here:
But I can also walk you through how the toucan mask goes together.
Color and cut out the mask.
We attached some tissue paper and construction paper to create feathers along the top of the mask.
Cut out some small squares of tissue paper. Pinch them in the middle, and attach them to the mask.
Cut long oval shapes, and snip them around the edges to create feathers. Glue these to the mask.
Now it’s time to put the beak together.
Color and cut out the two parts of the beak. For one of the masks we made, we used this template and cut the beak out of construction paper.
Fold on the dotted lines.
Attach the small tip of the beak to the large part of the beak.
Attach the beak to the mask using the large tabs.
Glue the tabs to the back side of the mask like this:
Attach the strap of the mask, fitting it to the head of your child. And you can see here where we used the construction paper for the beak:
And then it’s ready to go!
