Wiggly eyes are such a fun craft store supply! Learn how to make tons of googly eye crafts that both kids and adults are going to love.
I’ll admit, I love me some googly eyes. They are one of the best craft supplies for kids and they ALWAYS catch my eye at the craft store. When I’m shopping and I walk into the kids’ section of Michaels . . . there are the sparkly pom poms and the pipe cleaners . . and then there they are. In all their glory.
Not only are there small ones and colorful ones (not just black and white), they also have the BIG ones! The kind that you might put on a front door for Halloween for instance. When you put googly eyes on anything, it makes the surface or project come alive.
The thing is, I’ve spent way too much time looking at them and not enough time making things with them! Rather than just wonder what could be done with wiggly eyes, I decided it was time to put together a collection of googly eye crafts.
And you’ll be surprised what you can do with these little plastic eyes. A LOT!
