Our daughter absolutely loved making this flying saucer craft. This space craft is so simple to do and is a great way to use up some "craft odds-and-ends" that are lying around. It was fun to watch our daughter create her flying saucer craft as she told us what each bead or sequin did or "controlled".

What you'll need:

  • Paper plate (the heavier variety work best here - we used Chinet)
  • Clean plastic cup or container (we used the cup from some diced pears)
  • Beads, sequins, glitter, foam, etc.
  • White glue
How to make the Flying Saucer Craft
  1. Glue the plastic cup in the center of the upside down plate.
  2. Glue on as many beads, sequins, etc. as you would like.
