I've had that problem too. I considered getting some plastic acorn nuts to
cover them up so the sharp edges on the bolts aren't the first thing your
hand
hits. I've seen these on kids bikes, but I haven't found any yet...

Most hardware stores have metal nuts which are covered (they are like normal
nuts with a half sphere attached).  You may need to put a normal nut or a few
washers on as spacers as obviously the covered nuts don't***on too far.  

I've found this to work well on my seats and it certainly saves your fingers.
Another possibility is trying to find some *** valve covers that will fit
the bolts.
