When we first saw the trailer for Dolittle, I knew this was a movie my kiddo would love. A reimagined version of the classic tale, Doctor Dolittle talks with animals and embarks on an epic adventure filled with high stakes, laughter, a dragon, pirates and more!

I could just see his imagination soar after seeing the movie on how he could talk to animals and acting out the different characters’ roles, which is why we can’t wait to see Dolittle in theaters this Friday, January 17.

Epic Adventure of Dr Dolittle

The epic adventure stars Robert Downey Jr. and is filled with heart, humor and globe-trotting excitement.

His animal friends include: a parrot (Emma Thompson), duck (Octavia Spencer), polar bear (John Cena), giraffe (Selena Gomez), and so many more!

These masks are pretty simple to make, however, you will need a few supplies to not only make them a little sturdier, but to make them works of art.

  • Animal Mask Templates
  • White Cardstock
  • Markers, Crayons, or Colored Pencils

Turning Your Animal Mask Templates Into a Work of Wearable Art

Begin by printing our Animal Mask Templates onto the white cardstock. Color the masks — we tried to match the characters from the film.

Cut out the masks, including the circles for the eye holes. Punch small holes in each side, and connect elastic string to the mask by tying each end through one of the holes.
