Gruffalo face mask

Today for world book week I’m joining in on my very first blog hop with 2 other fantastic bloggers. Why not visit them for more world book day fun. They are Here come the girls and Making boys men.

So for world book day today I thought it would be nice to involve Puppy by her making her own Gruffalo mask. If you read the blog you will know that my girls love the Gruffalo, it was only last week we did lots of Gruffalo activities.

As Izlles and Posy are doing lots of activities at school for world book day Puppy is feeling a bit left out. But she soon cheered up when she saw what I lay out in the table for her

What you need is
•paper plate or a circle of thick card
•card cut into the ears, horns, tusks, teeth and whiskers (if your child is able they can cut them out themselves).
•brown tissue paper, paint, crayons, we used material.
•green pompom or paper for wart.
•brown crayon.

I started by pre-cutting the card the night before as Puppy is not able to do this herself. As well as cutting the brown material into squares. I also used her glasses to draw around and cut out the eye holes

Puppy started by spreading the glue all over, and I mean all over!! She liked how it fell from her glue spreader.

Puppy periodically placed the material on the glue but she defiantly preferred the glueing.
Once covered in the glue, cover your mask in the material or what ever your using until completely covered or until your child get fed yp

When we had finished that Puppy glued on the Gruffalo’s tusks, teeth and poisonous wart at the end if his nose.

Since this was covered in glue we left it to dry and I hoped it would dry soon.
Puppy used so much glue and couldn’t wait for it to dry, I resorted to trying to speed the process up with a hair dryer!!!

While I was blow drying the Grullalo Puppy got to work colouring in the ears.

Once the mask was suitably dry (the hair dryer worked) Puppy stuck on the ears and horns (this time with pritt stick).

You can now either just hold this in fount if your face. But a craft stick/lolly stick at the bott

Or you could make holes either side and attach elastic, string or ribbon. We used pink ribbon as its what I already had.

I also got my glue gun out and added some glue to the holes in hope that it would make it harder to tear but you don’t have to do this.
And here is my happy Puppy in her mask.

Sorry about the photo but she wouldn’t stand still for me to take a picture.

We even gave her purple prickles.

Izlles age 6
Posy age 4
Puppy age 2.5

Please excuse my spelling but I have dyslexia and do my best. Please don’t hesitate to correct me.
Thank you.
