Julius Jr. is a favorite cartoon of Nick Jr. fans. Now kids can print and color their favorite character. We also got in on the fun and lovingly colored the Julius Jr. mask.
Note that these kids' character masks by Nick Jr. were mainly designed to use as a "stick" mask where you cut out the mask and glue a craft stick on the back side of the mask. However, they can still be used as a regular mask. We recommend printing on card stock (heavy paper) and reinforcing the holes on either side (not shown on image), before threading elastic through them. To prolong play life, laminate with clear contact paper. Click on image to download your favorite.
