Paper Plate UFO


We are sort of a family of nerds. My husband and I are both science fiction fans & enjoy the supernatural. Mai must be following in our footsteps because she has become more & more interested in monsters & aliens lately. Tonight we made paper plate & bowl UFOs.

What you will need:

2 Paper plates

1 Paper bowl

Craft pom poms

Pipe cleaners

Acrylic paint & glue



Cut out the center of one of the paper plates.


Place it over the paper bowl & make sure that it fits over it enough. Trim the center more if needed.


Cut a small fold-down flap on the bowl for a door. Glue the bowl to the top of the whole paper plate & fit & glue the cut plate over the bowl.


Paint your UFO. We painted the base in silver,


Mai added her own designs in different colored paints & added her own special touches.

Together we glued the pom poms around the outside of our saucer.


We folded & twisted 3 pipe cleaners in half & bent both ends to use as legs for our space ship.


We glued the legs on & let the project dry. Mai loved the opening to her space ship. She used it to store more pom poms for later.
