Flying saucers, spaceships, aliens, creatures from Mars...we love them all! So fascinating and fun for any age to imagine and pretend. This flying saucer craft was a ton of fun for my kids as it was flown all over the yard and landed in many parts of our house. At one point my kids were the aliens that came off the saucer and that made for some great laughs! Get your paper plates ready for an afternoon that is far-out-there fun!
What You'll Need
How We Did It
Got paper plates? Then you got yourself a saucer. First have your child glue both plates together. I always use tacky glue for these kinds of projects. It is so much stronger than school glue and saves me from dealing with little frustrated artists.
Any opportunity for glitter use and my daughter is on it! (Actually, I kind of love glitter myself, too...) The glitter was out before I knew it. This is definitely optional, though. We were outside and swept up the glitter easily.
For our little alien critters, we used two large pom-poms and added some googly eyes. A foil ball would be a pretty cute alien as well.
