Prepare to feel like you stumbled on to another planet, because your day just got a little bit more intergalactic!
What’s cooler than the launch of HEXBUG’s nano Space line or the new VEX Explorers toys? Interactive alien bugs! In this HEXHUB #HEXDIY we’ll provide you with five creative sci-fi designs that you can print off and adhere to your HEXBUG XL Spider or Scarab. Create imaginative storylines with your toys, as the nano Space Cosmic Command center is under attack by eerie extraterrestrials!
HEXBUG XL Mechanicals are the incredibly realistic Scarabs and Spiders that you bring to life with a remote control! Watch them walk, skitter, and creep out unsuspecting bystanders – they’re loads of STEM-based fun. Read and along below and we’ll teach you how to decorate your XL Mechanical bugs in these exclusive alien skins. Designs include: Little Green Man, Tentacle Invader, Adorable Alien, Lunar Goddess, and Space Droid!
Before you begin: You may need an adult’s help with cutting and printing.
- HEXBUG Scarab XL or Spider XL Mechanical ($39.99 per unit, hexbug.com)
- Staples Sticker Paper (70972) ($13.49, staples.com)
- Fiskars® Softgrip Scissors, 8 in. Length, Straight, Stainless Steel ($4.89, target.com)
STEP 1: Load your printer with Staples sticker paper. Make sure it’s in correctly; this will be the basis of your DIY decal.
STEP 2: Download Alien Decal PDF and select which skin is your favorite. Don’t worry too much about choosing a single design to print – there should be enough paper to make more than one, if you change your mind later.
STEP 3: Ask an adult if you need assistance and use scissors to carefully cut out your desired design.
STEP 4: Using your scissors, cut along the dotted lines as featured above, so your decal lays perfectly flat.
STEP 5: Gently peel your design from its paper backing and apply it to your XL Scarab or Spider Mechanical.
STEP 6: Share your results with the world! Use the hashtag “#HEXDIY” and tag us in your photo on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
