Bend the strips so that the other ends of each strip meet in the same way and staple or glue together.

Attach the other three strips so they cover the hole in between the two original strips. This is the back of your helmet.

Make the mouthpiece by cutting a rectangle long enough to reach around your face from ear to ear with an extra 2 inches (5cm) and about 4 inches (10cm) wide. Fold the rectangle in half and cut triangle off the bottom to form a point in the centre of the rectangle.
