Is it teething time for your little one?


Kids’ parties are expensive, which means that cutting costs where you can goes a long way. You are always going to have a few spare paper plates and straws going after a birthday bash, so why not get crafting with your soon-to-be leftovers ahead of the celebrations?


What you need:

  • Paper plates
  • Straws
  • Paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Stapler



What to do:

  1. Cut a paper plate in half, setting one half aside for later and keeping the other for the base of the mask.
  2. Decide on which animal or character you are going to create, then paint your half-plate accordingly.
  3. Use the leftover half to create and cut out extras in the form of eyes, noses, ears, whiskers and horns. Stick them on using a stapler or glue, once the paint is dry.
  4. Next, take your straw and staple it to the side edge of the mask, right where the inner border meets the lined outer one.
  5. Create a range of cute characters for your little guests to choose from.
