These visors come in a variety of colors, so pick whatever you like and get started!

This would be a great group craft. Think summer camp or day camp, after school care, or even a sleepover. Do you have a ladybug unit coming up? This is a fun project to include!

Here’s just how simple they are. You will need a couple of round sponge applicators, a big one and a small one.

Use the big one dipped in white to create the eyes.

Clean it off and use it dipped in black for the spots.

Then after the whites of the eyes have dried, use the small applicator dipped in black to add the pupils. You can also add eyebrows with a black fine point pen if you like.

Guess what? You’re done! Just wait a little while for them to dry before wearing them. Have fun!

Isn’t Dominic a good sport? He was goofing around and put the visor on, then he actually let me take a picture. Haha.

    Hi, I love these! Want to make some for my daughters birthday give aways for the children. I just wanted to know what kind of paint you used? I live in the Netherlands, we have acrylic paint, oil paint and this morning I tried posterpaint, but the last one did not work out unfortunately).. love this idea. Thank you for your advice.

    Thanks for sharing. These are really cool. since we cannot find foam shaped caps for children here in Livingstone, Zambia, we will make some with the children using card board(recycling boxes) and elastic. They will not be as perfect but i know they will be great and the children will surely love them.
