U is for UFO Template

Step #1

Print and cut out the U is for UFO template

We printed the second page (with the oval and half circle) on orange construction paper and the U should be on white paper.

Cut along the outside of the U, leaving the white inside the U untouched.

Step #2

Glue the half circle to a piece of black paper.

Glue the oval above the half circle so that they slightly overlap.

Step #3

Color in the U and draw an alien inside the white space. (Remember you will be gluing the U upside down, so be sure to draw your alien with the U upside down.)

Step #4

Glue the U upside down, so that it slightly overlaps the oval.

Step #5

Label the paper U is for UFO with a white crayon.

Decorate space with star stickers (optional).
