Craft Spotlight: Farm Animal Masks

kids crafts barnyard masks

Dress up, learn facts, exercise and play farm with Farm Animal Masks! These pre-printed, coated masks are the perfect tools for encouraging students to participate in dramatic play and physical education!

There are 8 different animals to choose from, so your students get quite a bit of variety! Choose between a cow, duck, goat, rabbit, horse, pig, sheep and chicken.

kids crafts barnyard masksTo wear the masks, attach a pipe cleaner to either side. Join the pipe cleaner at the back. The masks are pre-punched with holes to allow pipe cleaner or string to be threaded through. We find that pipe cleaner works best for adjustments, as you can always twist it tighter to hold it in place.
