Smallfoot is a new animated adventure that is set to hit our screens on October the 12th. With original music and an all-star cast, Smallfoot, turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human. News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
Smallfoot stars Channing Tatum as the yeti, Migo, and James Corden as the smallfoot, Percy. Also starring are Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, and Danny DeVito
Warner Brothers invited us to create a unique Smallfoot themed craft in celebration of the film hitting cinemas next week. We have created these really easy masks, featuring two of the main characters, Migo and Meechee.
We have created free mask templates which you can download to make your own masks. You can choose to either watch our video tutorial below, or follow the step-by-step instructions further down.
Smallfoot – Migo and Meechee Mask Craft Video Tutorial
Smallfoot Masks – You will need:
- Our mask templates. Download them here: SmallfootMaskTemplates
- Blue, white, black and purple card or craft foam.
- White and purple felt or textured craft foam
- Scissors and/or craft knife
- Large lolly Sticks OR string/elastic
Smallfoot Masks – Method
The first step is to cut out all of the parts on our template in paper or card. You can do this with scissors but a craft knife does make in easier. Next draw around the templates in the right colour foam or card. You can see on the pictures that the faces are white and the features and details are blue for Migo and purple for Meechee. Make sure that you turn the templates over when you draw around them, so that pencil or pen marks are on the unseen side in the final mask.
Once you have cut out all the different parts, in is easy to assemble and glue them. Layer the parts top to bottom. For example, the parts for Migo’s mouth should be a black mouth, teeth, and blue lips. Glue the teeth down onto the black mouth first and then put the lips over the top.
For Meechee’s braids, you could just use flat card or foam and draw them on. However, we chose to plait some material for ours. You could use felt or foam. We used textured purple foam. Cut three strips of your chosen material to create each plait. We used very small strips for the smaller braids on the head and larger strips for the main plait.
Once you have assembled both of the faces, all that remains is to make them into masks. We added lolly stick handles. However, you could add small holes, or string or elastic, in order to make the masks wearable. Don’t forget to cut some small eye holes if you choose to do it this way!
And there you have it. Your characters are ready for play, dress up, or a film screening. We hoped you enjoyed our craft and are looking forward to seeing the film!
