My 8 year old loves skulls (I think he gets it from me) and he also loves masks. While coming up with ideas for our Homeschool Halloween Party it occurred to me that it would be great fun to create colorful patterned skull masks! Knowing that my 3 and 5 year old would also want to be in on the fun it was important to have options as far as pattern because everyone’s skull needs to look different. Trust me on this one, if any part of the masks looked the same they’d end up fighting over which skull belongs to who.
These skulls are big enough to cover most of the face while still being able to see out of the eye holes. To use these as a mask be sure to print on some heavy card stock. Simply color, cut out, pierce a small hole on each side of the mask and lace with a band of elastic thread. Bam, awesome skull mask! No elastic thread? No problem! Try attaching the mask to the end of a straw for a masquerade style masterpiece.
But wait, that’s not all! The great thing about these coloring pages is that you have options! You can just color as is, or maybe try coloring, cutting them out and pasting them on a sheet of black paper for a colorful wall decoration. Even better, laminate them after you’ve glued them to construction paper for a festive place mat!
Included in this download is 4 mandala inspired skulls and one blank skull for the child who wants to do their own thing. I hope you enjoy these as much as my kids do!
