So, you probably know that in our house we make a lot of girlie accessories, fairy attire and unicorn paintings. Emma has always ran the show in our art room, but lately my little Grayson as been showing more and more interest in creating and although he is totally cool with beads and tutu's--I wanted to create something special with him.
Emma and I knew he would be very excited to make any sort of flying device and we did have some leftover paper plates on hand, so a flying saucer it was!
We started by gluing two plates together and painting them silver. Tacky glue works best (I think I say this for every project, but it is true!)
While the paint was still wet we sprinkled on the glitter. It was looking pretty "out of this world!"
OK, so I must be honest, this is Emma doing all the work. We lost the little guy at step two...you win some you lose some, right? And Emma had to have gems all around the edge of the saucer. I actually loved this special touch of hers.
We used googly eyes and large pom-poms for our aliens. Are they cute or what?
When we were finished with our very awesome flying saucer you better believe our little "too busy to craft" guy was back in action wanting to fly our saucer all over the yard. I guess it was a success after all.
I shared this over at Kiwi Crate, join me there for this craft and much more.
