This DIY robot mask is a craft that kids of all ages will enjoy. It is made from a simple paper bag, covered in foil and adorned with their own choice of decorations. It was a really fun craft to do together, and we all loved the results. Now I have kids walking around saying, “I am a robot” in a robot voice. Abby was disappointed that she didn’t get to make one because she was at school, so the supplies may need to come out another day.
The first thing we had to do was find the right size bags. These Starbucks bags worked perfectly. Actually, one of them ripped as the kids were playing with it, so we traded it out for a similar size white bag.
The next part was Corban’s favorite part…the glue. He liked to add a lot of glue to the bag. I did the glue around the edge, and he filled in the center. We did the back side first then covered the front, sides and top. Kenzie did the gluing on her bag as well.
We were given these glow in the dark foam star stickers and neon glitter glue for free from Craft Project Ideas. I thought they would be perfect to decorate our robot masks.
I used hot glue to attach the buttons. We bended or twisted pipe cleaners to make antennas. They did the glitter glue and stickers.
We cut toilet paper rolls and covered them with glue and foil to make the “ears” for Kenzie’s mask. We used Dixie ups for Corban’s mask, but he wanted to leave them polka-dot rather than covering them in foil.
Here’s Corban in his finished mask.
