To celebrate the release of the new movie, I created this easy-to-make Rio 2 mask craft for kids. They’re a fun and colorful way to let your kids celebrate Carnival any time of the year! Kids will love becoming their favorite feathered character from the movie. The hardest part of making these is waiting for the glue to dry! A quick stop at the craft store and I was able to purchase everything I needed. A pre-formed craft mask was $2 and a bag of colorful feather was around $4. I had the glue at home so the total for this craft was only $6 and I have enough feathers left over to make another mask.
The first thing you’ll want to do to make your own Rio 2 mask craft for kids is determine your favorite color combination. For this mask I selected teal and orange because they remind me of Rio 2 colors. I then laid them out on the mask in different designs until I found one that I liked. I glued the feather on and let it set overnight to dry completely. Using hot glue would be a quicker way to finish the mask, but requires you to be very careful. If the glue touches your skin it is very, very HOT.
