Kids craft cardboard alien collage

Super fun and easy to make cardboard collage aliens and space rocket. Meet Barry and the gang from the far side of the moon! We love simple projects like this that can be made using recycled cardboard with some paint and glue.


  • Cardboard
  • Paints
  • White paper to make the eyes
  • PVA glue or glue sticks
  • Marker pens or paint markers.


The first job is to paint all the cardboard. Once the paint is dry, cut out lots of different shapes (my 4 yr old is still to young to manage big scissors and thick cardboard). Think body shapes then lots of other shapes that could be arms, legs, heads, spikes etc. We also drew lots of eyes onto white paper which I helped cut out.
