Amy is a life-long crafter who shares modern kids crafts on Instagram @startcreativestudio.
During our travels abroad in Southeast Asia, we discovered that tigers are considered a symbol of bravery and protection in many Asian cultures. To celebrate this mighty animal, we created dresses, tees, rompers, and more featuring unique tiger prints as part of our Tiger Cub Club. We also teamed up with Amy from Start Creative Studio to create the perfect craft to work on with your little citizen of the world. For all the brave, little tigers out there, this tiger mask makes for a fun activity and creative play afterwards. All you’ll need are some painting, gluing and scissor skills.
