Paper Plate Alien

Download Activity Guide

This dangly alien looks scary and dangerous but he's actually kind at heart. His four eyes mean he's always on watch and keeping you safe, and his long arms are extra stretchy to fight off all the baddies!

  • Step 1Paint a paper plate a bright colour. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Carefully cut slits all the way around the edge of the plate to create fringing.
  • Step 3Trace around something round (like the end of a glue stick) onto the back of some felt and carefully cut out the circles.
  • Step 4Attach the felt with glue to decorate the paper plate.
  • Step 5Poke a hole into a decofoam ball and push a chenille stem into the hole to create a dangly eye. Tape the end of the chenille stem to the back of the paper plate. Repeat this process to create three more eyes.
  • Step 6Use a marker to draw a pupil on each of the eyeballs.
  • Step 7Cut long strips of red and pink crepe paper. Tape the strips together at one end.
  • Step 8Fold the strips over one another until you have 30cm of woven crepe paper. Tape the loose ends together and trim the excess crepe paper.
  • Step 9Tape the woven crepe paper to the paper plate to create an arm. Repeat steps 8 and 9 to create another arm.
