Artist Paints Children's Medical Helmets Into Helmets Anyone Would Want

Diply 9 Dec 2016

When a child has a lasting flat spot on their head, it is often the case that a corrective helmet needs to be worn for some time to reshape that part of the skull. This condition, known as flat-head syndrome, affects as many as 1 in every 10 children but is completely reversible if it is caught before the skull has fully hardened.

Most of the time, these helmets are quite plain 0 but this is changing after artist Paula Strawn began to decorate them. Her incredible artwork has brought a smile to the face of hundreds of children who wear her decorated helmets. You have to see these!
SHARE this article with your friends on Facebook. What an amazing way to use your artistic creativity to affect the lives of young children.

Look at how cool this helmet has become!
