Pronunciation rebus for helium?

For school, we have to do a baby book for an element. Mine is helium. On one of the pages it says we need a “Pronunciation Rebus” for your element. I have absolutely no idea what that is. Please help! Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • A representation of a word or phrase by pictures, symbols, etc., that suggest that word or phrase or its syllables: Two gates and a head is a rebus for Gateshead H = hydrogen He = helium (Hell-e-…)…

  • That is when you use pictures or symbols to show the pronunciation of the word. They used to have them under beer caps when I was a kid. For example:

    A heel + the letter E + a thumb – TH = heel + ee + thumb – th = heel ee um
