Keeping the Creativity at Home with miniMAG - June 24, 2020

Alien Invasion

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s a UFO!  Make your own flying saucers today using materials you may have on hand!

You can download the instructions here

What you need: Small thick Paper Plates, scrap paper (can be patterned), glue, yarn, googly eyes and a clear plastic cup if you’ve got ‘em.

Step 1:  Glue two plates together around the edge and paint them.

Step 2:  Cut out two aliens, glue them together except the bottom feet.  Add an eyeball or many!

Step 3: Glue the alien onto your plates and then glue the cup over the top.

Step 4: Decorate the rest of your ship however you like! Add stickers, little sticky gems, draw shapes… use your imagination!
