How to Measure a Kid’s Head for a Helmet

Your head is one of the most important parts of your entire body. Where would you be without your head? Well, probably in a museum, because let’s face it, a head-less person is pretty rare. But seriously, your head is super important. Fun fact; did you know that the human brain weighs about 3 pounds, and an elephant’s brain weighs 11 pounds, and a whale’s brain weighs 22 pounds. That’s a huge brain. Did you know that the brain takes the longest of any organ to develop and goes through more changes than any other organ. The brain is responsible for everything we do; speaking, moving, thinking, posture, eating, seeing, balance… the list goes on and on. Literally EVERYTHING! The human head contains 22 bones to help protect the brain. This is good for minor bumps, bonks, and jostles, but don’t you think we should do everything we can to protect that thing that sits on top of our shoulders? Especially when participating in extreme sports. In 2009, motorcyclists in Nigeria wore dried pumpkin shells on their heads to get round new helmet laws. Safe, right? We think there is a better way to protect the ol’ noggin, and we think you’re going to LOVE it. So be sure to visit Kidsteals.com on Thursday, March 12th at 8 AM PST. In the meantime, we’re going to help you learn how to properly measure your kids head for a helmet.

Did you know that the average person’s head is a full adult size by age 10? But determining what size helmet to buy isn’t just based on age. Every child has a different size, and shape for that matter, of head and grows at a different rate, so it’s important to measure as well.

how to measure a kid's head for a helmet

Here are a few steps to help you properly select the best helmet for your child:

Step 1: Wrap a flexible tape measure around your child’s head just above their eyebrows.  Make sure to keep the tape measure flat against their head with no bumps or creases. It should be level all the way around. Don’t pull too tight, it shouldn’t pinch or hurt while measuring.

Step 2: Read the measurement off the tape. Make sure you read the measurement in centimeters as most helmet sizes come based off centimeters. This is their head circumference.

Step 3: Find a helmet designed to fit the circumference of their head. Most companies have size charts, small, medium or large, with head circumference measurements in centimeters associated to them.

Step 4: Once you get a helmet, try it on your child and make sure it fits properly. Make sure it fits the shape of their head as well as the circumference. Adjust the padding inserts, and the turn dial if it has one. The helmet should cover their forehead and the back of their head. If they put it on and shake their head front and back or side to side, the helmet shouldn’t wobble in either direction. If you were to put your hand on top of the helmet and twists it, your child’s head should go with the helmet. If the helmet twists freely on their head, it is too loose.

Step 5: Adjust the helmet’s chin strap and side straps. The chin strap should fit snugly but not pinch, and shouldn’t restrict their ability to breathe, swallow or speak. The side straps should slide up so they are directly below your child’s ears.

Step 6: Take your new helmet out for a new adventure, and have fun!
