Make a Cheeky Monster Spike mask

It’s time for another cheeky creation – let’s make monster masks so you can become your favourite Cheeky Monster! Here’s Spike...

Once you’ve made Spike, have a go at making the rest of the Cheeky Monster masks. Then you will be able to create your own Cheeky Monster show with your friends and family, and dress up as your favourite monster.

What you will need:

  • A orange felt pen
  • A pencil
  • A sheet of A4 orange card
  • A sheet of peach, purple, and white foam
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • A lolly-pop stick
  • Masking tape
  • A grown-up helper

What to do:

  1. To start, carefully draw the shape of Spike’s head and the outline of her eyes with your pencil and, once you are happy with the shape, go over it with the orange felt pen.
  2. Carefully cut around the head outline to get your Spike shape.
  3. Now, it’s time to cut out the eyes. Carefully poke the scissors through the centre of the eye shape to make a hole and then cut out the eye shape. You should ask your grown-up if you need help you with this.
  4. With your pencil, draw out both of Spike’s teeth and three horns, two large and one small on the white foam, then put to one side.
  5. Next step is to draw out one small and one large spike from the purple foam and cut out, then put to one side.
  6. Finally, draw and cut out two eyebrows from the peach foam, then put to one side and you are ready to assemble your Spike mask.
  7. Lay out the Spike mask with the foam pieces next to it.
  8. Apply a small bit of the glue stick to the eyebrows then carefully stick them down above the eyes.
  9. Then stick down the small horn in the centre of the mask and the smaller of the purple spike’s in the centre at the top of the mask.
  10. For the next part you will need to turn your mask over.
  11. The two larger horns are to be stuck the reverse side of the mask, make sure you have them peeking over the edge.
  12. Next stick down the larger purple spike in the centre at the top of the head.
  13. Stick down the two teeth to the bottom of the mask.
  14. Turn the mask back over and with your orange felt pen draw on two circles for Spike’s nose, make sure to position them either side of the small nose horn.
  15. Finally, turn the mask over again and with a small piece of masking tape stick the lollypop stick in place for your mask holder and you are ready to play!
