Color Your Own Zoo Animal Masks
good for small children
I used the masks with 3 to 9 year old children. It was fun, they colored them however they wanted and embellished them with things I already had. They had a ball and most of the animals looked totally unique!

I was so thrilled when these arrived. They were more than what I expected. The holes were small but didn't have any trouble getting the strings through them. I had my daughter test it out and she looked adorable. Definitely will buy again.

I purchased these masks for party favors. The boys really appreciated the animals. And the small marker sets that I also bought through Oriental Trading were perfect to pair-up with them. The markers offered a great range of colors so the kids were very pleased. I left the elastic off because I wanted them to have a smooth surface to color. I put the cord on without trouble, I did not let my 7 year old try as I thought that would be too frustrating. Cute product and good price and many animals to choose from.

Zoo Animal Masks
I bought these for our VBS kids as a craft. They loved coloring them and wearing them.

I let the students in my Pre-K class color the masks for our zoo animal theme and the students had a lot of fun. They liked to wear the masks after they were colored and they looked cute.

Missing parts and pieces
I purchased two packages of Zoo Animal Masks. One package had only 10 masks and the other package had 12 masks and no elastic bands. It would have been ideal to have all the parts for both packages. I would say the masks work okay, but would be better if not made out of slick paper, so the crayons work better. We did not try with markers. If you purchase just expect that something could be missing.

Prepare for smudges everywhere
These masks were a hit at the party for the little ones, however, the finish did not allow for the markers to dry. We used Crayola Markers and even Sharpies and the color continued to rub off on everything. We ended up with kids with markers all over their hands and clothes. :(

Fun Craft for Little Kids
I used these for ninety 3 to 5 year old children to color at a Safari VBS. They are thick enough to stand up to rough playing. However, I had all of the strings knotted by volunteers before we gave them to the children to color. They were a little hard to knot, and I think that it would have taken too long to knot them for a whole class of young children if we hadn't done that task beforehand.

Fun project at a great price.
The kids (2-7 years old) loved decorating these masks during my 4 year old son's birthday. We painted them with tempura & paint dots before lunch, put them in the sun and they were ready for a group picture an hour later. I thought about buying the foam masks (instant gratification) but the craft part of this project was perfect for this bunch. Many parents were impressed and asked where I found the masks. All the masks held up perfectly (some were loaded with paint). Many of the kids wore their masks upside down, I think because the way the nose gets covered, but no one seemed to care or notice.

Good Product should use coloring markers not crayons
bought these as part of a Noah's Ark VBS program we did on a mission trip to Africa. They were great for the trip (not much luggage space for the 250 we needed. The paper coating made it difficult to color with Crayons compared to color markers. This was especially true of cheaper off brand crayons people donated to us. Great product but may want to consider this.
