Silver or gold pipe cleaners
Your child should wear green slippers and a fluorescent green leotard and tights.
Wrap the headband in foil and attach 2 or more pipe cleaners to the top for the antenna. Have fun painting your face in a variety of psychedelic colors and outer space designs. If you're a girl Martian you can add a sheer fluorescent green ballet skirt. If you can't find a wig, try dyeing your hair with washable hair tints.
If you can't find oversized glasses, try making your own out of cardboard. Cover the cut-out cardboard with foil or decorate with fluorescent markers. Let your imagination go wild and add your own touches to this visitor from another planet.
