First tear/cut up your tissue paper into 2x2 inch squares.
Now cover your paper plate completely in school glue. Hand over the paper plate and tissue paper to your child, and ask them to completely cover the plate.
While they are decorating their plate - cut out the features of the alien's face. This is where you can get really creative. I did three eyeballs from our printable and then horns, a mouth and an antenna.
Once the paper plate is completely covered in tissue paper, glue and/or staple on the facial features.
Set aside your finished Paper Plate Alien to let it dry completely before displaying proudly.
