This mask is the perfect finishing touch for a classic DIY robot costume this Halloween!

Age: 5+

Duration: 10 Minutes (plus drying time)

Learning Outcomes: Exercise fine motor skills. Practice precision scissor skills. Create beautiful take-home art!

You’ll Need: 

  • R52076 Folding Fun Masks
  • Aluminum Foil (available at most grocery stores)
  • White glue
  • Tempera Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Goo Spreader


Start with a flat mask, and use the goo spreader to put a thin layer of glue over the whole mask.

Lay a large piece of aluminum foil on top of the mask, gently smoothing the foil so there are not air bubbles trapped between the mask and the foil. Allow the glue to dry for a few minutes.

Once the glue has dried, carefully cut the excess foil away. Make sure to carefully cut out the Vs that serve as pleats, and the eyes, mouth and nose. If you can’t get to the eyes easily, try using a pencil to make a small hole before trying to use your scissors.

Once the excess foil has been trimmed, it’s time to decorate your mask! Sharpies work well on foil, but they aren’t good for a classroom setting. We used tempera paint to decorate our robot mask!

Once the paint is dry, fold in both sides of the pleats and tape to give the mask dimension. Push out the nose along the pre-cut scores. Then use chenille stems and the pre-punched holes to secure the mask to your head!

To complete your robot costume for Halloween, try covering a cardboard box in aluminum foil. Then a parent or teacher can cut holes for your head and arms to go through, and students can decorate the robot bodies! This classic Halloween costume is fun and easy to make.
