DIY Recycled Cork Aliens

Excited to have Allison from All for the Boys back today sharing another fun kids craft! 


Hi! Allison here again from All for the Boys. We are all about simple crafts and ones that you can play with! These DIY recycled cork aliens are all of those things, plus they are pretty darn cute!

Save up those corks and stash them away for a craft day.

You can make these cute little aliens using anything you find around the house. Pipe cleaners, paper clips, washi tape, markers, felt, paper, etc...

Younger kids might need help poking the pieces in. Using some pliers helps! You can make a hole for them using a craft knife as well.

Start adding bits and pieces to see your aliens come to life!

The best part is seeing what the kids come up with. You could add in paint, glitter - anything really!

After they're done they can make stop motion videos, play scenes or just a cute decoration for around the house!
