How to make a ninja mask from a t-shirt - Mom vs the Boys

Whether your little one has chosen a ninja for Halloween this year (we’ll have two this year) or just likes to dress up, I’m going to show you how to make a super cool ninja mask in just seconds out of any t-shirt! 

I actually have two different ways, you can decide which style you like best. The red mask will work better for shirts that have a print on the front.

Step one: grab a tee, this blue one is plain with no design. 

Step two: place the tee over your childs head with the neck hole around the face. 

Step three: turn your child around, grab hold of the sleeves and tie behind the head.

Step four: pull up the tee to cover the face, so only the eyes are showing! Voila, you’ve got a ninja in the house!

He really should have had his LEGO Ninjago tee on for this demo, but hey, it’s awesome! Even Emmett says so! 

Here’s the other way, which is the same but different and uses a printed tee.

Step one: grab a tee, this red one has a design on the front. Turn it inside out so the tag is showing to the front.

Step two: place the tee over your childs head with the neck hole around the face. 

Step three: turn your child around, grab hold of the sleeves and tie behind the head.

Step four: pull up the tee to cover the face and roll under to tuck the tag in. Only the eyes should be showing! Voila, you’ve got a ninja in the house!
