Bike riding is lots of fun! But it’s always very important to wear our helmet in order to protect ourselves. Getting little ones to wear a helmet may not always be an easy task, so we created a few fun decorations to make it more appealing and fun. Here we’ll take you step by step to turn your helmet into a super cool bug – perfect for any little bug lover! If bugs aren’t your thing, we also have instructions on how to make a dog or a butterfly and flowers for your helmet. All these decorations are easily removable so you can try all three and switch it up every time you go for a ride!
Important note: these decorations are not permanent and will not harm the surface of the helmet. Round adhesive fasteners are removable if you choose to switch up or remove your helmet design.
Things you’ll need
- Hook and loop round adhesive fasteners
- Sheet of paper
- Large plastic eyes
- Glue stick
- Permanent markers
- Fun foam
- Pipe cleaner
- Pom poms (2)
- Glue gun
Trace a number of circles onto your fun foam and cut them out.
To make sure you get the right size for your helmet, try this with a regular piece of paper first. For the bug’s head, cut out an oval shape from a piece of paper and check the sizing. Make sure it is a good size for your helmet. Once you have the right size, trace the oval shape onto the fun foam and cut the shape out. Glue the eyes into place with a glue stick and draw a nose and mouth with a permanent marker.
For the antennae fold a pipe cleaner in half. Add a pom pom to each end with a glue gun on a low setting. Glue the folded tip of the pipe cleaner to the back of your oval.
Add the adhesive hook and loop circles sticking together to the foam shapes with sticky side up.
Place onto your helmet!
Now you’re ready to ride, bug style!
