Flying Saucer DIY

Flying Saucer DIY
What You’ll Need:

paper plate
markers or crayons
stickers (optional)

When this playtime diy lands in your neighborhood park or backyard, it’s bound to push your child’s imagination to its outer limits! Make a UFO with a few worldly items around your house. It’s a simple craft for kids that takes kids on an extraterrestrial adventure!

Play tip: Add to the fun by making up words that aliens might say or ask your kiddos their thoughts about what might be “out there.” Their answers might just be out of this world!

Let’s Get Started!


Draw a circle on the back of the plate. From the center to the outside, divide the circle into 12 even parts.

Color each section as you like. We recommend alternating colors per section and decorating with stickers.

Parent-only step: Cut the sections from the middle to the outside of the circle, but do not cut all the way through. Leave the outer area of the plate in a complete ring. Flip one section up and the next one down and continue to alternate until all the sections are either facing up or down. It’s ready to fly!
