My family LOVES Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation day. I can never remember to dress my children in green on St. Patrick’s Day, but not a summer goes by that we don’t participate in a holiday made up by a fast food chain that allows you to get free food!
Whether you are looking for an easy way to get a free meal on July 14th, or you have a school play to dress up for, or maybe you are just looking for a fun craft, these DIY paper plate masks are so simple. You may have all of the supplies on hand, if not they are cheap and easy to find.
One sheet of pink, black, and tan/brown construction paper
Hole punch (or just use scissors or something sharp)
Glue/and or tape
String (preferable elastic)
First cut out a 5 inch triangular shape out of the plate for the mouth. It will be close to a fourth of the plate.
Next cut an oval out of the pink paper to be used for the nose. It will be slightly smaller than the widest part of the mouth. About 4 inches. Then draw two ovals for the nostrils.
You will also fold the tan paper in half to cut out two identical horns about 3 inches long. Then some ears made of black paper that is a pointy oval shape, along with the same shape in pink that is about an inch smaller.
Cut holes for the eyes (put the mask on to pencil in the approximate width) and punch holes for the string.
These are super cute! What a fun craft idea 🙂
So fun!! Love this idea!
Super cute and fun!
Love this so much. You’re such a great mommy! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Blessings to you dear mom-
We participated for the first time this year and it was so fun! We will be rethinking our choice on time next year however and eat dinner at 4 in the afternoon because of my goodness say the crowds!!
I almost mentioned to consider what time you go because I am sure it can get crazy! We were there on Wednesday in the middle of the day and the exhibit has been there for a while so I am sure the enthusiasm has died down some. So, it was not bad at all. Although now it is the last weekend so I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets really busy for the next three days!
Sorry! I didn’t even see what this comment was on and I thought it was about the LEGO Americana Roadshow. Ha! Anyway, yes. The crowds. We went at 10:30 am this year. We waited until it was late enough for the kid’s to be able to order kind’s meals, but early to not be a high volume hour of the day for the average “Cowstomer”.
These are so cute! Chick Fil A is one of the places that we miss the most living in SA!
