When we went to make an alien craft, we were a little stuck. The ideas are endless as there is no right or wrong way to make an alien - which is part of the fun! Our daughter is old enough now to be able to draw what she's thinking, so we decided to let her draw a prototype and then we'd fit the materials to her creation. She absolutely loved every aspect of this alien craft and really enjoyed following her drawing. For younger children you can just draw up an alien for them to follow.

What you'll need:

  • Construction paper
  • Pencil or crayon
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Craft foam
  • Glitter
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Any other decorations your alien architect needs
How to make the Alien Craft
  1. Have your child design their alien and draw it.
  2. Follow the prototype and create the alien.
