On paper, draw a sketch of the wolf face. To make both halves of the future mask symmetrical, complete only one side of it, and then fold the sheet in half and cut out two parts at once. Try on the blank to the child's face, mark with dots the places where there should be slots for the eyes. Draw their contours of an oval or round shape and cut them out. Keep in mind that the attribute should not cover the baby's nose, otherwise it will be difficult for him to breathe during the performance. Now transfer the resulting template to cardboard and make the base of the mask out of it. If your material is not gray, then at this stage paint it or paste over it with colored paper of the appropriate shade.

Next we make the nose. Roll a piece of cardboard into a tube with a diameter of 4-6 cm. Glue the ends of this blank. Seal the holes of the part with circles cut from the same material. Decorate the nose detail in the same way as the main part of the mask. Leave the product to dry. Next, spread glue on one end side of the cylinder and attach it to the base in the right place.
