Printable Animal Masks for Kids
Here are some ways wearing masks can be good for kids:
– Dressing up as a favorite character or animal is a great way for kids to build vocabulary too! When wearing a mask, kids can feel more free to use words and phrases they normally wouldn’t.
It’s a great way to explore new vocabulary and think outside the box. They get to think about what their character would say and do, and then act it out.
– Masks can help shy kids feel less anxious. The mask gives them the confidence to engage with other kids and step up in social situations in a way they may not have on their own.
The mask can act as a social currency too, because it gives shy kids something to talk about with new friends.
– Pretending to be a character can help kids to feel brave in situations where they might be anxious.
Children might like to wear a mask to the doctor’s office or to a new classroom.
