Awesome Picks for Kids: 6 "Not So Scary" Animal Masks for Halloween

A masquerade for Halloween? Ummm!.. why not?? Masks are an ancient tradition turned into art through history. These days, a lot of children find them quite comfortable for "trick-or-treating" and prefer to wear them paired with a regular outfit, rather than walking around with complicated costumes.

Animal masks go back to primitive times, when hunting was such an important aspect of life... This year I've found a revival of the animal mask with handmade designs in modern styles, representing friendly creatures in trendy colors, made out of ecofriendly materials. Definitely, an option for many kids who refuse to put a costume on.

Six masks made it to my list of favorite ones, some are custom made, some are ready to ship, and one of them, even available as a PDF for immediate downloading. One thing I love about masks, is the fact that they may be worn by anyone in the family regardless of size, and they may also be passed along from one year to the next.
