Choose from any of these elephant mask templates. Print out the file on A4 or Letter size cardstock.
If you chose the black & white mask template, color or paint all the pieces. You can use crayons, colored pencils, markers, or a water-based paint such as tempera, poster paint or acrylic paint.
Leave out the sections bordered by dotted lines—the eyes, the pair of little circles at the sides of the mask, and the tabs on the ears with the words "Glue here".
Notice the pair of little circles on each side of the mask? These are the spots where you need to punch holes for attaching the string. Paper masks normally tear around these holes after a few uses. To reinforce these spots, put transparent tape over the marked holes and fold the tape towards the back of the mask.
