One of my kids’ favorite dress up paraphernalia are masks. There is something about a mask that transforms the wearer.

No longer are they simply a kid.

Now they are a ferocious lion, silly monkey, or hopping bunny.

Our kids had several of these foam masks in their dress up box, but only one of each kind. It is hard to be a colony of bunnies when there is only one bunny mask.

Mom to the rescue!

I came up with a template to make more bunny masks, which I thought would be a fun craft right around Easter.

I hope you have fun making this easy foam bunny mask with the kids in your life too.

Steps to Make an Easy Foam Bunny Mask

Step 1: Print and Cut out the Template

The first thing to do is print out the template I made for you from my free resource library. (Need the password? Sign up at the bottom of the page).

You will need a .pdf reader to open it. If your computer does not come with one, you can download one online for free.

The printable is designed to fit an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of paper.

Cut the template out with a scissors.

Step 2: Trace and cut out your foam

Use the template to trace out your mask on the craft foam. I used a pencil to trace it on the foam.

You will need to cut 2 of several of the pieces, so make sure to pay attention to the number when you are tracing out your pieces.

Again, use a scissors to cut out the foam pieces.

Step 3: Glue the pieces together

I used tacky glue for this step because of its flexibility. You don’t want to use a glue that dries hard because the foam mask will bend around the wearer’s face.

Hint: Make sure to glue the whiskers under the snout piece.

Let the glue dry.

Step 4: Add the elastic band

Poke a hole with a nail in each side of the mask. DO NOT make the holes too big. You only want them to be big enough to fit a small elastic band in them.

The best bands I found were the ones with metal tips that were designed for masks. However, I didn’t have time to order some of these and couldn’t find them in my local store. I did find some stretchy beading  wire which I tied around the edge of the mask.

It shouldn’t matter too much what kind of string you use, as long as it stretches.

String options for mask

You want the string to be tight enough to fit snugly around the face without digging in to the skin. I cut mine to about 14″ but you will have to measure it to the child who is creating the mask.

And that is it.

This is a fun craft to make around Easter.
