Character Cutouts

Character Cutouts craft

Put a friendly face on a familiar storybook character. Kids make posters with face and arm openings so they can step into the characters - literally.

  • 1.

    Choose a character or person that you'd like to be from history or current events, or a favorite story or song. On large posterboard, use Crayola® Washable Markers to design a life-size character. Leave the face blank and draw two holes where your arms will go.

  • 2.

    Ask an adult to help you cut out the face and arm holes with Crayola Scissors.

  • 3.

    Decorate your character's clothing, hair, and surroundings with Crayola Glitter Glue. Spritz with water if you like for a dotted effect. Dry.

  • 4.

    Place your arms through the two openings to balance the poster board on your body. Peer through the face opening to become the character!
