DTP & Halloween
Halloween is a great time to put desktop publishing skills to use to create fun, holiday-themed items for family and friends. One way to do this is by focusing on printables that come in the form of Halloween mask templates. The options for printing these masks offer full color masks, blank masks that need to be colored in and even the ability to decorate the mask with beads and other crafty items once the mask has been printed.

The ClassroomJr website boasts a wide variety of crafty projects for kids. One area where they showcase fun and free printables is under their printable masks page. On this page, they have over twenty-five different masks for printing that range from cute animals to Greek culture masks.
