Our friends at ZedandQ not only reviewed our book, but created a fun step-by-step guide to creating a Yellow Cow mask!
We just couldn't stop at a book review! The Yellow Cow has become one of our household favourites. So we created a fun craft you can make with your little ones. I made this mask for my 3.5 year old, so it is pretty small.

What You Need:
- Download the Template Here
- Felt - Gold, Beige, Yellow
- No Sew Tape (from spotlight or art stores)
How To Make:
1. Cut the template out and then start tracing it onto the felt.
2. Cut out the felt pieces. Then roughly cut out the 'no sew' tape and lay it onto the back of the hair, horns and eyebrow pieces.
3. You'll need to add heat to bind it all together. I used a steam iron, but a normal iron will be much easier. Correctly position all pieces onto the yellow face. Place iron directly on top of the hair, horns and eyebrow pieces for 6-10 seconds.
4. To attach ribbon, hole punch or cut a little slot on each side of the yellow face. Then add a ribbon and tie a BIG knot. NB: To make this more durable, I sewed a thicker piece of fabric ribbon on each side.
