We had a cousin playdate last week where the girls played cat + mouse in these little paper masks. It was the sweetest thing ever. They also played dollies and ballerinas which was all too cute not to document.
We used the cat and mouse mask templates from our Kids Craft Camp Animal Unit, which you can see here. I’ve also included the downloads for the masks in this post for you should you want to use them (see the images of the masks below). The masks work for adults as well as kids and you could even scale them down for dolls (which I’ll have to do later as the idea is just too irresistible!). For this 2yr old playdate I made the masks but I love the kid made version from Camp. Don’t hesitate to let your little one cut and make their own! it’s really the best. I love the look of kid made crafts so much more. There’s something so special about their cuts, their vision, etc.
They each had a blast climbing in and out of the little hole in the side table (which I recently painted pink with chalk paint – it used to be black and is from Target years ago. Have you used chalk paint before? I’m kind of digging it).
I have to admit, hanging out with 2yr old girls was sort of different for me (I’ve been in boy playdate world for so long!). It was fun to really indulge in a world of pastel.

I love your ideas. As a homeschool mom, these will come in handy for playtime and craft time with friends. We have lots of paper for crafts but lacked ideas. We will be giving the mouse mask a try this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration and for making things easy to use.
