Shrek mask

As the joy of Christmas begins to fade into memory and wet January days become the norm, we at Shrek’s Adventure! London think it’s a good idea to have some fun arts and crafts up your sleeve to entertain the kids. So we scoured the internet to find the best Shrek-themed arts, crafts and baking ideas which you can do at home with your children!

Read on to find your next favourite arts and crafts activity.

Donkey facemask


Ogre Ears

If a whole facemask is a bit much for you or you want some different options for the older kids (or adults) then an easy solution is to make Ogre ears instead. See this blog to discover exactly how. All you need is headbands and green foam sheets for this simple but effective accessory. Pair with green face paint for a great last-minute Shrek costume.

Ogre or Dragon Tissue-Box Feet

To complete the Ogre ensemble – you can easily update this arts and crafts project made by ‘A Bird and a Bean’ from making dinosaur feet to making Ogre or Dragon ones! All you need is some old tissue boxes and you’re almost ready to build these top-quality stompers. Be warned, this has the potential to get messy if you decide to use paint to get the perfect shade of ogre green so be ready with some old newspapers to save your worktops.

Gingy The Gingerbread Man Cookies

This recipe may be for slightly older kids who have more patience as the prep time is quite long but the results are amazing. Freshly baked gingerbread cookies styled to look exactly like Gingy from the movies. They’re almost too cute to eat… almost.
