A typical astronaut helmet like those worn in the Apollo missions is made of highly strengthened polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is a high impact-resistant plastic that you can also find in bulletproof glass and exterior automotive parts.
A lot of inconveniences accompany the wearing of an astronaut helmet. For example, you can’t just take it off to scratch a simple itch on your nose. To remedy this, a velcro patch is stuck on the inside to serve as a scratcher.

It's not that hard to make an amazing astronaut helmet, grab a foam camping mat, some craft foam, and get started!
Ever since the first astronaut went into space, children everywhere have dreamed of joining them. Here's a great project that will be a surefire hit with those young adventurers!
This pattern was inspired when my 7 year old son came home and informed me that he needed to go to school dressed as an astronaut. Tomorrow. And so, in the wee hours of the night, the foam astronaut helmet was born! I was really impressed with how quick it came together and how great it looked when finished, so I tweaked the pattern, and now it is available for you.
If you are a bit crafty, this project should be relatively straightforward, with a construction time of around 2 hours not including painting.
I have updated the pattern file and it now includes an adult sized template as well.

Just let your little ones don this fine JR. Astronaut Helmet and engage the countdown sounds "Mission Control, All Systems Are Go 5... 4, 3, 2, 1, Blastoff!" Once your little junior achieves his/her imaginary escape velocity, they'll be truly able to explore the space around them. Make sure they close the spring-loaded retractable visor with the push-button. They can then use the mock boom microphone to relay messages back to mission control and even get an audible " All systems are go" message.
These astronaut helmets will complete your astronaut costume!
