Instructions

    Create Your Visor

  1. 1

    Cut the poster board or foam into the shape of a triangle--in the size you want your visor to be--with strips down each side. The strips will become the band of the visor.

  2. 2

    Decorate the material with paint.

  3. 3

    Fold the left strip in half and cut a slit about 1-inch long (2-inch total) into the fold.

  4. 4

    Slide the right strip into the slit in the left strip. This becomes the back of the visor and should look like an X.

  5. 5

    Adjust to fit your head, wear and enjoy.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear sunscreen for full sun protection.
  • For a fun twist, crease the poster board into a corrugated, zig-zag pattern.
  • Children under the age of 10 should be supervised while doing this task.
