Wiggly Eye Drawing Starter

Liam has never been overly interested in crafts or drawing, when he was younger he would join in but only for short amounts of time unless it was messy fun. Progressively this interest waned until he produced almost no drawings, paintings or crafts. The time has come though to entice him back to drawing and work on his pencil grip before he starts school next year .....

This activity was inspired by Teach Preschool's Googly-eye easel starters

I setup the invitation to draw by gluing wiggly eyes onto an A4 piece of paper

and I am very happy to say he wanted to draw!

He started by drawing facial features and turning the wiggly eyes into monsters but he didn't stop there. He kept drawing and drawing until.....
He had a whole monster family! Mummy Monster, Daddy Monster and Baby Monster

Every summer I have my three grandchildren for a week of Camp Nana. During the week, we do arts and crafts, play in the water, go to the movies, have a picnic, etc. I'm always looking for new ideas to keep their attention. Thanks for sharing Wiggly Eyes. ;o)

They also make colored googly eyes and ones with eye lashes, so the monsters have so many different looks-scary or cute!

Thanks for you tips. Hopefully this will be the beginning of my little artists too.
