Season’s greetings! It’s that special time of the year for family traditions, wintry fun and holiday crafts. Spend time with your loved ones as you dive into this #HEXDIY STEM-savvy project! Last year we saw how much you guys liked the HEXBUG DIY Holiday XL Mechanical Decals Series 1. Now make your XL Spiders and Scarabs all the more festive, with the release of HEXBUG DIY Holiday Series 2 XL Mechanical Decals!
HEXBUG XL Mechanicals are incredible lifelike bugs you control with an R/C remote. Watch them scurry across the floor, spook an unsuspecting holiday houseguest or act as a high-tech educational tool. In this HEXHUB DIY we’ll teach you how to dress up these bugs in a little bit of holiday cheer. Enjoy five new decal designs; Snowman, Mrs. Claus, Nutcracker, Jack Frost, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Select your favorite design, print, adhere, and watch your favorite holiday character come to life!
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 Christmas 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: Cut along the dotted lines as featured above, so your decal lays perfectly flat.
STEP 5: Peel your design from its paper backing and apply it to your Scarab or Spider Mechanical.
STEP 6: Share your results! Use the hashtag “#HEXDIY” and tag us in your photo on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!
