Materials

  • Yellow craft foam visor, available at craft supply stores
  • Large sheet of green craft foam for the leaf shapes
  • Diego Sun Visor Template
  • Pen or marker for tracing
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Optional: Clothespins or binder clips; light green craft foam sheet
Tip: We use craft foam visors, but you can use a canvas one if you like.

Directions

  1. Step 1: Make the leaves

    On the sheet of green craft foam, have kids trace the leaf templates and cut them out. (Parents may need to help with the leaf indentations.)

  2. Step 2: Glue on the leaves

    Glue on the leaves, splaying them slightly as shown. Optional: You can cut out a small light green flower and glue to the top of the leaves as we've done, or leave as is.

  3. Step 3: Let dry

    Set aside the visor to dry. If you wish, use clothespins or binder clips to keep the petal and flower center from shifting while the glue is still wet.

Tip: To keep the leaves from slipping as they dry, clip them in place with clothespins or bag clips.
