Paper Plate Masks

By Jeff Barker (Outreach Worker – Willowtree)

This past week the kids at our KIC (Grade 1-4) program really enjoyed making paper plate masks. These masks are very simple to make. Use them to re-enact a Bible Story or have kids make up their own skit.


  • Pretty much any craft supplies can be used on this mask.
  • Paper plates
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Coloured popsicle sticks
  • Pompoms
  • Crayons or markers (pencil crayons do not show up well on the plates!)
  • Glue
  • Scissors

To keep the mask on the children’s face without them having to hold it with their hands a hole can be poked on each side of the plate. We then put 1 pipe cleaner through each of the holes and tied them together at the back.
