I want to thank Lisa, from OkinawaGirl, for introducing me to a wonderful song! Five Little Men In a Flying Saucer. I found the lyrics here.
I found a number of youtube videos that have great singing and really cute art to go along with it. I love how they flash or put the number on the screen every time a man leaves the flying saucer. The video below is by "Happy Ape".
I particularly like this version with little aliens in the saucer. This version is from Twinkl Primary Resources.
Jenn, from Crayons and Cuties in Kindergarten, showed me a book with the same name. It is awesome!! The men in the flying saucer keep visiting Earth and one by one fly away. They don't like the neglected state of the Earth. Happily, the Earth gets cleaned up and all the men come back.

I put 5 pieces of Velcro on the flying saucer. I actually hot glue them to the plate to give them more strength.
To make the alien spacemen, or astronauts (whatever clip art you have) all you need is to save your wine corks. Hot glue a piece of Velcro to the bottom of each cork.
Hot glue down the side of the cork and place the spaceman on the cork.
Here are my super space men, ready to board their saucer!!! To pick up your free spacemen click here!
Have fun flying!
This week I am participating in a really exciting venture. I selected a blog that I really admire and am giving one clue Monday-Friday to see if anyone can guess who I admire! Click here to see the first clue. You can guess one blog each day. Anyone that gets the correct blog, can choose $3 or less from my store. I will give that prize to ANYONE that can guess the correct blog! Fun! It doesn't matter which day you leave your guess, just as long as there is only one for each day. I will announce the blog I admire on Saturday! Happy guessing :)
