These two videos were the inspiration for my own flying saucer! I made three versions with “Little People”, spacemen, and aliens! This project was actually really quick and easy. It is sure to be a hit with your little “space kids”! My astronauts and spacemen were thanks to Educlips and Zip-a-dee-doo-dah Designs!!!
Jenn, from Crayons and Cuties in Kindergarten, showed me a book with the same name. It is awesome!! The men in the flying saucer keep visiting Earth and one by one fly away. They don’t like the neglected state of the Earth. Happily, the Earth gets cleaned up and all the men come back.

First, I got two plastic plates and a little plastic ramiken from a dollar store. I hot glued the two plates together. I hot glued the plastic ramiken to the middle of the top plate.
If you would like to use “Little People”, then you fill in the hole on the bottom with hot glue. When it is full to the top, place a piece of Velcro on top of it. Let it dry upright, so it will be straight. When it is dry, the men are ready to be added to the saucer.
To make it look more like a flying saucer, (which my husband says is debatable) I painted the middle with red puffy paint and added “LED” lights with yellow puffy paint. That is the extent of the flying saucer!
I held it on the cork for a few seconds, until it was semi-dry.
