Paper Plate Santa Mask Craft
- Piece of red construction paper for Santa’s Hat.
- White Paper Plate – Dinner Size.
- Cotton Balls.
- School Glue.
- Optional – ribbon and hole punch or popsicle stick.
Begin by cutting out half of the inside circle of the paper plate. The little ones may need help with this step.
Then, cut a Santa hat and oval nose out of the red construction paper.
Add glue to the remaining half of the paper plate – you could use a paint brush to apply the glue, this will allow you to apply the glue to the whole area without puddles of glue. Place cotton balls on the glue. You can stretch out the cotton balls if you don’t want to use a lot of cotton balls on one project. Then, add the construction paper nose.
Next, glue more cotton balls onto the construction paper hat. Add a bead of glue to the bottom of the hat and add the cotton balls to the glue. Now, add a few drops of glue onto the tip of the hat and place one cotton ball on the glue. You will have a hat Santa will love!
Finally, add a bead of glue to the rim of the top of the plate and glue the hat onto paper plate.
Optional – You could punch holes in each side of the plate and add a piece of ribbon to help hold the mask on. Or, you could glue a popsicle stick on the bottom of the mask as a small handle.
You’re all done! I hope you enjoyed working on your Santa Face Mask Activity.
