Avengers Paper Plate Masks

One of the neatest things about being a mom is seeing my son bond with my husband.  Right now they both share a love for all things Lego and Super Hero.  While I enjoy Lego, I'm not a big super hero fan.  But I still tried to incorporate it into our crafting time as well.  Here are some Avengers Paper Plate Masks that we recently made together!

Ok, the design for these 3D masks is really simple.

Cut two slits in the top of your paper plate.  Then, cut out two eye holes.  (Make sure your child can see through them.)  Then, cut out the rest of the mask's shape!

Once your mask is cut out, staple the top portion as shown below.  This way the mask will fit your child's face better and look more 3-dimensional.

Then, grab a Sharpie and add details  or just start painting.  (We used these paints.)

Once you're all set, punch out a hole on either side.  String and tie on elastic cord and you're done!

I hope you have a fun time making some super hero masks with your kids too!
