Using a large plastic egg, some colored paper, popsicle sticks and glue you can make a spaceship like Meet The Robinsons, Little Einsteins, The Jetsons.

Remember the Easy Striped Glass Vase? Today I’m sharing something similar. I found these cute mini loaf pans at a craft store. They were a solid red color.
