This is a great homemade space helmet it looks lovley and is quite robust and once you have finished you can paint it.
- 1 newspaper
- 3-4 cups paper mache glue
- 1 balloon
- 1 bottle coloured paint
- First blow up the balloon to fit childs head.
then tear newspaper into segments/strips.
apply a layer of glue on the balloon and then a layer of newspaper and continue this process until you are happy with the thickness of your paper mache helmet. Allow this to dry in the sun for a day.
Once dry cut out a neck hole and a window for the face making sure everything is in proportion simple allow extra room for either another layer of paper mache around the cut edges or you can sand paper the edges to not be sharp.
