Right now my son has three loves in his life: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chicken nuggets and The Avengers.
While I can’t do anything when it comes to the chicken nuggets, like any good father, I can help him pretend to be Captain America.
The process for making the mask and shield are same:
Now this is the part where I talk about making your shield and mask a little nicer than the one my 3-year-old is rocking.
- Be a little better artist than myself
- Have your kids make their own designs
- Print off masks or shield designs and glue them to your paper plates.
Even if your mask and shield turn out silly your kids will have fun making them. It’s a great way to do things together and kill an hour.
I would love to see any of your homemade paper plate shields or masks left in the comments below.
