DIY Butterfly Mask For Kids

Did you ever wear a mask or make a mask as a child? I remember making one at school. It was a paper mache mask and was so fun to create. I loved making arty things at school and these were always my favourite classes as a little girl, art and PE.

Well today we have a super cute butterfly mask to make. It is easy to do and we have a free downloadable template to help you! Enjoy!
