Transcript

I love finding out how astronauts travel in space in their spacesuits. But do you know how to make your own astronaut helmet? Let's find out.

Astronaut helmet.

Draw around a plate to make the astronaut helmet shape. 

Then draw a rectangle for the visor. 

Cut out the helmet shape. 

Ask a grown-up to help cut out the hole to make the visor. 

Glue strips of tinfoil to the helmet. 

And glue a plastic sheet on the back to cover the visor hole. 

Glue a strip of black card along the bottom. 

Stick on green and red circles to make the buttons. 

Then stick a lollipop stick onto the back to hold it with. 

Decorate your helmet.

Three, two, one. We're ready for lift-off.
