|Fold the paper plate into half|
|Cut along the folded line, until 1 inch near the edge of the plate. Don't cut through.|
|Fold the plate again in half. Cut along the lines.|
|The cut another 2 slits, so the whole plate is divided into 8 equal parts|
|Fold it out|
|Hold the plate with the jagged edges below and throw it up into the air. Watch it fly. It is amazing!|
|The kids trying out their UFO|
- Cellophane tape
- 2 cardboard strips
- 1 straw
For the next craft, we made a hoopster that could fly.
- Take a long strip of cardboard and roll it up. Glue the edges together or stick with cellotape. Make a big hoop.
- Take another strip of carboard and roll it up. Make a smaller hoop.
- Attached the hoops to the ends of a straw.
Here's how to completed hoopster look like.
Hold the hoopster with the straw on top, and the hoops at the bottom (S is holding his hoopster upside down) and throw it. The hoopster has to be held with the small circle in front and the straw on the top. Raise it above your shoulder and throw it. See it fly.
|When trying out his hoopster, S threw it towards the railing and it landed on the ground floor instead.|
- A square piece of lightweight pastic bag
- Small plasticine ball
Tape the sides or tie each corner of the plastic with a piece of thread.
Knot all 4 ends of the thread together.
Attach a small plasticine ball to the knotted end, to give it some weight.
