Halloween is just around the corner. Need a fun and easy costume idea but don’t want to shop at a giant superstore? Meyamo’s Robot Halloween Costume templates let kids be creative and craft their own robot, Add fun accessories and recycled materials to bring your robot to life.
Step 1: Print the template on white or colored paper (cardstock works best).
*You can print on regular paper and then glue or trace onto cardstock to make the robot (face and body) more rigid.
Step 2: Color or paint the templates to personalize your robot as you’d like.
*You can also choose from the pre-decorated accessories to save time.
Step3: Build the Robot
For the Robot Face:
There are two options for the robot face. You can paste or draw the robot face onto a small box to create a full robot head or use recycled cardboard (cereal boxes work well) to create a mask. For both options, cut on the dotted line of the template to leave holes for the eyes and mouth.
*If making the mask, make a hole on each side of the cereal box, connect them with elastic cord and you are ready to go!
For the Robot body:
Paste or draw the body of the robot on sturdy cardboard. Use the loop holes on the sides to add string and tie around the waist. Make two holes at the top and add string to tie the body around the neck. This way, it will stay on while playing.
Step 4: Decorate the templates with buttons and colors to look more like a real robot. Use the accessories template to bring your robot to life or use recycled materials like bottle caps, candy wrappers, old CD’s, metallic paper, corks, etc.
Give your robot a name! If you are decorating with paper or fabric, you can include fun phrases or words with Meyamo’s easy to apply, fuzzy iron-on letters in different designs and colors. Find them in the products section at www.meyamo.com.
Some accessories can be used on their own:
-The wristbands with supersonic screens which you can wear by joining the ends around the wrist or attach to a bottle or box that fits around the arm.
-The anntenas to communicate long distance. You can attach the anntena to cardboard or a stick as a support.
