3 Fun Kids Last Minute Construction Paper Costumes

by Lynn Lilly, Oct 19 2020

Craft-o-ween has been in full effect at house for a few weeks. This is such a fun time of year to get crafty with your kids. This week on my weekly Crayola Facebook live broadcast I am sharing three fun costume ideas you can make with your kids. These costumes are fun to keep your kiddos busy and then have something to play with after! 

Project 1: Construction Paper Masks

Have fun creating your own mask with the templates I created. Create a superhero mask, an owl or a pumpkin! The creativity is up to you! Add ribbon to the mask or use a paper straw as a stick to hold your mask up!

  1. Trace and cut the belly and the wings of the owl on a piece of cardboard and on brown construction paper. 
  2. Trace a second set of wings on brown construction paper and set aside. 
  3. Glue the belly to the cardboard.
  4. Cut 2" strips of red, yellow and orange construction paper. 
  5. Fringe cut each strip.
  6. Glue the strips across the belly of the owl. 
  7. Take the first set of wings and glue to the cardboard. Glue to the belly.
  8. Take the second set of wings and cut each one into strips but make the cuts a wavy cut. 
  9. Lay the wavy wings over the wings glued to the cardboard. Line them up as if you are putting together a puzzle.
  10. Partially glue each strip down and lightly fold up the wavy side to make it look like feathers. 
  11. Cut owl feet out of black construction paper and glue the bottom. 
  12. Add a string or ribbon to the top to wear around the neck. 

Pair the owl the mask from the first project!

Project 3: Emoji Pendent Costume


  • Crayola Construction Paper
  • Crayola Markers

  1. Cut and trace a circle on yellow construction paper. A paper plate works great as a template. Adjust the size of the circle based on the age/size of your child. 
  2. Use markers to make your favorite emoji face.
  3. Either add string to for your child to wear around your neck or pin it to a shirt. 

Have fun crafting!
