Masks & More - plus Scissors Skills!

Masks are a fun craft project for any age. Here are several websites with mask templates to get you started. Design and make your own too!

Paper crafts are easy and very inexpensive!

  • Design Your Own Stamp
    Print the template and create your own stamp.
  • Download a Dinosaur
    Print a few dinosaurs to color and cut out. Make a whole forest of dinosaurs, or blow up the page to make a huge one.
  • Free Paper Toys
    Print, cut, and glue your way to fun toys and boxes made just of paper. Some younger children will need help with making the toys, but everyone can enjoy an animal friend finger puppet.

Scissors skills are important for Kindergarten.
