Crazy Eyes

4.8 based on 4 ratings

What You Need:

  • 1 large styrofoam ball
  • 2 medium styrofoam balls
  • Googly eyes (assorted sizes)
  • Toothpicks
  • Foam sheets
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Low heat glue gun (optional)
  • Tempera paint (red)
  • Paintbrushes
  • Pipe cleaners

What You Do:

  1. Have your child design eyes using red paint and googly eyes on each of the foam balls. Allow them to dry.
  2. Ask her to use the toothpicks to start assembling the foam balls into position. Lay Crazy Eyes's body on a table (he won't balance at first).
  3. Have her cut some pipe cleaners to create arms. Push them into the styrofoam.
  4. Draw, cut and glue on feet and hands.
  5. Encourage her to add googly eyes and move around the parts until Crazy Eyes is balanced and can stand on his own.
