Flying Saucer Fling

Flying Saucer Fling craft

Kids will have fun creating their own unique flying saucers. Then let then soar into the universe.

  • 1.

    Use Crayola® Markers to decorate the backs of two small paper plates. Make geometric grids, circles, lines, or any flying saucer design you wish. Fill in spaces with bright colors.

  • 2.

    Draw a line of Crayola School Glue around the rim of one paper plate, then place the second paper plate face down onto it. Insert bits of ribbon into the wet glue between the plates if you wish. Dry.

  • 3.

    Ask an adult to help find a large sidewalk or paved area to make a launch pad for your flying saucers with Crayola Sidewalk Chalk. Draw planets on the sidewalk. Give each planet a point value, with the numbers increasing as planets get farther away from the launch. Add stars and comets around the planets for a celestial look.

  • 4.

    To play the game, players take turns standing on the launch pad to toss their flying saucers to the planets. Keep track of points for each landing. Use your math skills to calculate points.

  • 5.

    For an added challenge, each player chooses an exact number of points to earn. Or landing on a star or comet could subtract points.
