My kids love to create make-believe heroes and costumes. They plan their Halloween costumes for the next year as soon as November 1 rolls around. Superman had some new heroes that needed costume elements so we started our costume.

How We Did It

Foam Mask

Trace eye holes onto your foam so you have placement for your mask. Then make your mask outline. Superman wanted to create a bat mask for his bat costume, and I wanted a fiery mask, so I started making a yellow one.

Foam Mask
Carefully cut out your mask. To cut out eye holes, first poke through the middle of the eye hole, then cut around where you've traced.

Try on your mask to make sure it's the right shape and size. Maybe try scaring your mom while you're trying it on...

Foam Mask
Color your mask with markers and glitter glue. I firmly believe the more colors the better, but Superman wanted just a plain black mask, "it's more bat-like Mommy."
Foam Mask

Cut two pieces of yarn about a foot long. Carefully tie a knot at both ends to prevent fraying and to keep the yarn from pulling out of the staple. Carefully staple the yarn to the sides of the mask. (Hint learned from experience: Reinforce the mask with tape).

Foam Mask

Show off your snazzy new mask to your mom. Then come up with a very long list of other costume pieces needed: bat wings, a belt, pants, shirt... The list goes on and on.

I got to model the pretty mask, which my daughter has since claimed. I love the red glitter he added, it looks kind of like flames to me.
