"helmets" by Mansfield Primary School


Class three have been looking at the Vikings so we decided to make helmets. The basic shape was made using paper strips and cellulose paste over the bottom half of a balloon. We modelled horns from tin foil and covered those with paper. The children then designed eye guards and ear guards from card and added those. Some of the girls preferred plaits which they made from wool. Straps were made using card and paper fastners for studs. Each child had very definite ideas of how they wanted their helmet to look and each design was quite different.
