Flying Saucer


We talked a lot about modes of transportation here on planet Earth this week… but what about transportation in outer space??

To make a super-stellar UFO at home, all you need are two paper plates and a few supplies for decoration. Glue the plates together and let dry completely.


For the best flying saucer, I recommend silver paint. Travis had a blast painting, since it’s a color we’ve never used before!


Then we added glitter because, well, we needed space dust of course. In retrospect, I would have skipped this part, as it made flying the UFO a glittery mess every time! But for toddler fun, glitter can’t be beat.


As the finishing touch, we added gem stickers around the rim to be the flying saucer’s lights.


I made Travis three little aliens by gluing googly eyes onto pom poms.


Finally it was time to soar through space!
