CRAFTivities- Astronaut Helmet Craft

Astronaut Helmet Craft

OK so if you're super creative you make this awesome. This was as far as my creativity took us...



TOOLS:
  • 2 Paper Plates
  • Scissors
  • Photo
  • Glue/ Glue Stick
  • Tape
  • Crayons
  • Some kind of clear plastic. We used Cling wrap (good luck! ha!)

MAKE IT A CRAFT KIT
(Eliminate time consuming steps so you can spend more time with your LO)
  • Gather Tools
  • Cut a half-ish circle out of one plate just large enough for the face in the photo to show.
  • cut out a piece of clear plastic to tape to back UNLESS you're using cling wrap, then WAIT until assembling.
  • Place gallon Ziploc bag Except for paper
Now it's ready to go when you are!




STEPS:
  • Cut a half-ish circle out of one plate just large enough for the face in the photo to show. (if you didn't make a kit).
  • Cut a piece of clear plastic to fit just a little larger than the hole you cut.
  • On another plate, glue or tape photo to the inside making sure its in a position to see it from the half circle on the other plate. For a younger child, draw the rectangle for them to know where to tape/glue the photo.
  • Tape/glue the two plates together to create the helmet.
  • Color the helmet.
  • DONE!

Wow, Wow, Wow! What a beautiful new layout. I am so afraid to play with my blog for fear I'll really mess something up. It looks great.

I also really LOVE this space helmet. What a creative idea.

Take care--Trish
