DIY Super Hero Face Masks: Champions for Kids #Fiskars365



I
participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids, Fiskars, and The
Motherhood. All opinions are my own.





My
children are all about crafting and creating lately. They have been making
costumes and playing dress up around the house for the quite some time now. We
decided that since we have been enjoying arts and crafts so much, that it would
be a good idea to invite some friends and family over to help us celebrate some
creativity while being Champions for Kids with the Fiskars simple service
project. We spent an afternoon crafting super hero face masks and were able to
gather some art supplies to donate to my son’s elementary school as well. It
was a great way to spend an afternoon.






DIY Super Hero Face Masks: Champions for Kids with Fiskars







What you need:


Paper
plates


Scissors


Hole
punch


Yarn


Paint
{tempura washable paint}


Paint
brushes


Water





How to make it:


Take
the paper plates and fold the top over and using scissors cut out two holes on
the fold to create the eyes of the mask.





Next,
take the hole punch and punch one hole on each side of the mask at eye level.





Take a
piece of yarn {my yarn was in 10” lengths} and loop it through the hole punch
you created on the side of the mask and tie it off on one end.





Repeat
on the other side of the mask. There should be two long pieces of yarn attached
at either end of the mask. These will be used to tie the mask in place once it
is ready to be worn.





Next,
set out pallets of washable paints, paint brushes, and water for the children
to use and let them get creative.





Set
aside the masks to dry.





Once
the masks are dry you can put them on and tie the string to secure them in
place. Enjoy!

Our
masks were not dry by the completion of our creating celebration. So I dropped
off the masks the next day once they were dry. I was amazed by how much the
kids enjoyed making these masks. They each made two masks… some made three.
They got really into this craft and were thrilled with the finished product.





Creativity
comes in all shapes, sizes, and mediums. Art is a wonderful creative outlet for
all my children. My kids spend hours coloring, painting, and creating projects
at home as well as at school. The stories that we read at bedtime are turned
into pictures during the day. Their favorite characters are turned into
costumes to be worn while running around the house. Because of this interest of
theirs we decided that we would host a little crafting get together. The boys
requested that we create masks and I requested that our guests bring art
supplies to be donated to school.

Champions for Kids with Fiskars #Fiskars4Kids Art Supplies




As a
former Pre-K teacher I know how quickly a classroom can go through supplies. I
also remember spending quite a bit of my own money on the needs of my
classroom. Every little bit helps and donations are almost always welcome. You
can donate supplies as well as your time. I am lucky enough to be able to
donate my time volunteering at my son’s school and he loves having me there.





My
little boy started kindergarten this year and comes home each day with artwork
he completed at school. He lights up when he talks about his creations and
cannot wait to share with me every little detail about his pictures. I am delighted
to be able to help support my son’s school and our family is thrilled that our
donations will help other children to express their creativity through art. We
enjoyed being Champions for Kids
with the Fiskars simple service project.
