Turn a paper plate and black construction paper into a mask of one our most beloved presdients. Our Abraham Lincoln mask is simple to make a perfect for a President's Day craft. Your child will look adorable as the learn about Lincoln and President's Day. All you need to do is teach them to say "Four score and seven years ago" while they have the mask up to truly complete the effect.

What you'll need:

  • Paper plate
  • Popsicle stick
  • Black construction paper
  • Black felt (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
  • Peach colored crayon
How to make this Abraham Lincoln Craft
  1. Cut the center out of a paper plate and discard it.
  2. Use the crayon to color the remaining paper plate ring.
  3. Cut a semi circle out of the felt if you are using it, otherwise use black construction paper. We made the bottom edges of the beard a little jagged when we were cutting and the effect worked really well. We also cut a "tab" in the top part of the beard to make it easier to attach to the paper plate. Use the masking tape to attach it to the plate.
  4. Cut a hat out of construction paper. We found that it worked best to hold the piece of construction paper horizontally and fold it in half. Then cut the hat shape you want. This allows you to get the hat even, and if you hold the paper horizontally the hat isn't too tall (holding the paper vertically results in a floppy hat).
  5. Use masking tape to attach the hat to the paper plate ring. Make sure the hat is on enough of the paper plate ring to support it a bit.
  6. Tape the popsicle stick to the back of the mask down by the beard.
