This activity allows your child to have fun creating something new. It's also great for developing their fine motor skills as they twist the pipe cleaners onto the hair band and put their creation together. It's a bit fiddly in places so you might need to lend a helping hand.
How to extend the magic
Your child could experiment further by making the eyes different colours. And how about adding an extra eye or two for an even weirder look? When your child has finished their Alien Eyes, why not have a little game of role play and both pretend to be aliens from outer space. Which planet are you from? Are you a friendly or scary alien?! You could have a go at inventing your own alien noises and words!
