Print out the tiger mask. You can use heavy paper if you want the mask to be extra sturdy, but it's not necessary.
Color in the tiger. Black and orange? Pink and green? Blue, red and purple? Let your child's tiger be whatever color they like.
Cut out the mask. For larger faces, cut a wide margin around the tiger's face.
Punch a hole on either side of the mask.
Thread each length of ribbon through a hole and secure with a knot.
Put on mask and secure around head by tying the ribbon at the back!
