kids character visors

How adorable are these visors? With the weather getting warmer, it’s the perfect time to use visors for crafting! Our Super Visors Craft Kit comes with 48 white cardboard visors, non-toxic markers, and elastic. This is a fun group activity for summer camp and other recreational programs. Choose a theme, like movie characters, and have each kid decorate their own visor as their favorite characters. See the steps below for 10 different visor ideas we created from popular Disney and Pixar movies!

Steps for Making Each Visor

visor craft for kids

Nemo:

  1. Color the visor with orange marker.
  2. Eyes: Cut 2 circles out of white construction paper, 2 circles out of orange construction paper, 2 circles out of black construction paper, and then 2 more white, making each circle smaller than the next. Glue each circle on top of the other, starting with the smallest white circles. Tip: Use as little glue as possible to avoid glue marks.
  3. Stripe: Cut out 2 thin stripes of black construction paper, and then another strip of white construction paper. Glue them to the center of the visor.
  4. Fins: Use one of the blank visors if you have extra, or even foam or some type of thicker paper to create the fins. You may want to draw them with pencil first. Be sure to make one fin larger, and the other smaller for his “lucky fin”. Color them with markers, then tape them to the back of the visor with duct tape or masking tape.
  5. Thread the elastic through the small hole at the tip of the visor, then tie a knot, then thread through the hole on the other side and tie again.

Dory: Follow the same steps as Nemo, using the dark blue marker for the visor, purple construction paper for the eyes, and a larger piece of black construction paper for her stripe.

Note: You can also use markers to create the eyes and stripes, but we used construction paper to add a more natural and 3D look. 

visor angry bird

Angry Bird:

  1. Color the visor with red marker. We flipped the visor over and colored the back, which is brown and uncoated, to try and create a more “feather” type look.
  2. Eyes: Cut 2 circles out of white construction paper. Then, if you cut open 2 large wiggly eyes, you can use the perfectly round black pieces inside for the black part of the eyes! Glue the eyes, then cut some rectangles out of black construction paper for the eyebrows and glue those too.
  3. Beak: Cut a triangle out of orange construction paper and glue it to the visor.
  4. Tie the elastic.

visor alien craft

Alien from Toy Story movie:

  1. Color the visor with light green marker.
  2. Eyes: Cut 3 circles out of white construction paper, then cut 3 smaller black circles and glue them together. Then glue them to the visor.
  3. Mouth: Use a black marker to draw the mouth and color it in.
  4. Antenna: Use one of the visors if you have extra, or foam, or thicker paper to create the antenna. Color it with green marker, then tape it to the back of the visor with duct tape or masking tape.
  5. Tie the elastic.

minion visor craft

Minion from Despicable Me:

  1. Color the visor with yellow marker.
  2. Goggles: Cut out a strip of black construction paper for the sides of the goggles. Glue the black strip to the visor. Then cut out 2 circles from silver paper for the eye goggles.
  3. Eyes: Cut 2 circles from white construction paper, slightly smaller than the silver goggles. Cut 2 more circles from brown construction paper and 2 circles from black construction paper (or wiggly eye centers – see Angry Bird instructions). Glue the cicles to each other and then to the visor on top of the black strip.
  4. Hair: Cut a black pipe cleaner into 3-4 small pieces and tape them to the back of the visor with duct tape.
  5. Tie the elastic.

visor stitch

Stitch from Lilo & Stitch:

  1. Color the visor with dark blue marker.
  2. Eyes: Cut oval, alien-shaped eyes out of light blue construction paper. Then cut the same type of shape out of black construction paper, slightly smaller. Then cut small little circles out of white construction paper. Glue them to each other and then to each side of the visor, far apart.
  3. Nose: Cut out a circle from darker blue construction paper. Then draw nostrils on both sides with a black marker. Glue it to the visor between the eyes.
  4. Tie the elastic.

Arlo from The Good Dinosaur:

  1. Color the visor with light green marker.
  2. Eyes: Cut 2 circles out of white construction paper, 2 circles out of dark brown construction paper, and 2 circles from black construction paper (or wiggly eye centers). Glue them to each other and then to the visor.
  3. Nose: We used green foam and cut out 2 circles for the nostrils. You can also draw them on with darker green marker.
  4. Tie the elastic.

visor tigger character

Tigger from Winnie the Pooh:

  1. Use a pencil to first draw out the design – stripes, ears, snout, eyes, nose, etc. Then use the orange marker to color in the spaces you want to be orange.
  2. Use a yellow marker to color the snout, ears, and the portion where the eyes are.
  3. Use a black marker to color in the stripes, eyes, eyebrows, and whiskers.
  4. Color in the nose with the pink marker.
  5. Outline features with a fine tip black marker, like the ears, snout, and the eye portion.
  6. Tie the elastic.

visor olaf

Olaf from Frozen:

  1. Use a pencil to draw out your design first – eyes, nose, mouth, tooth.
  2. Trace the pencil with a black marker for a thick outline so it’s visible.
  3. Color in the eyes and eyebrows with black marker, the nose with orange marker, and the mouth with brown marker (or black).
  4. Add fun sequins like snowflakes to give Olaf his own personal flurry, just like in the movie!

Mickey: 

  1. First, outline where the red versus black line is going to be, and draw the outline of the buttons.
  2. Color the top with black marker and the bottom with red marker.
  3. Outline the buttons with black marker and color them in with yellow.
