Funny mustaches for kids and parties
May 4, 2011 §
You can make these sort of moustaches for your kid’s fun or ask your kids to make it themselves. These could be made using straw and colorful chart papers.
Trace & cut the moustaches from crafty foam. (I didn’t have brown foam, so I used a peach color & shaded it with a brown Sharpie.)
You can definitely just glue the moustaches directly onto your dowels, but I kept with the theme of the “slits” & cut tiny ones along the middle of the moustaches. It’s a fun idea to have one dowel with many interchangeable dress-up pieces that can slide on & off. I found that a bamboo skewer (found at the grocery store) worked great for the moustaches. They’re much smaller & able to handle the narrow parts of the moustaches.
I colored in the bit of exposed dowel to match the color of crafty foam. But this is not necessary.
After you are done with the making, you can throw a theme party for your kids sometime where kids has to bring there own different moustache or mask made by them. The best one should rewarded with a prize. This way kids will learn a bit of crafting and will have fun too 🙂
Don’t forget to take your kids pictures. 🙂
Please do share your ideas as well.
