Our family as Toy Story Aliens. Finn made himself, Daddy and baby brother. Then very proudly taught his big brother how to make me and him.


  • Toilet rolls
  • Sugar paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Googly eyes
  • Felt tip pen


Finn was only given the toilet rolls, he figured out which resources he wanted to make these all by himself.

He used a ruler to draw a line across his sugar paper, then cut along it. He then glued torn blue tissue paper on to the strip.

He glued his green tissue paper directly on to the toilet roll, then stuck his blue strip around the bottom.

He cut toilet rolls to different heights and repeated the process. These ones were Daddy, Finn and Cian.

He then showed Ioan how to make Mummy and Ioan aliens. They all had fun in our garden.

Then Daddy Alien and Finn Alien played together. Finn Alien was giving Daddy Alien slobbery kisses.

DfES Early Learning Goals (2017)

Personal, social and emotional development

ELG 06 – Self-confidence and self-awareness:

Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.

Expressive arts and design

ELG 16 – Exploring and using media and materials:

Children safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.

ELG 17 – Being imaginative:

Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role-play and stories.
