Craft googly glasses for April Fool's Day with just a few supplies and a little imagination.


What You'll Need:

Cardboard egg carton, Scissors, Pencil, Hole Punch, Paint, Paintbrush, Markers, Chenille Stems or Pipe Cleaners

Make It:

  1. Cut out two adjoining egg carton pieces for your child, and poke two holes in the bottom with a pencil. Use a hole punch on both sides, about ? inch from the edge.
  2. Have your child paint the cardboard with various colors of tempera or acrylic paint. Let dry. Add decorations with markers.
  3. Twist one end of a chenille stem or pipe cleaner through each punched hole on the side, then curl the ends to fit around ears. Trim to fit.
