This week when O was looking for a craft to do I pulled out some googly eyes from his craft drawers, which I can’t fully open as my craft cupboard is a mess, so with the eyes and paint which was easily accessible I decided we could try making some rock monsters.
First we needed to collect some rocks from the garden, and let them dry whilst O had soft boiled eggs and soldiers for lunch. Yum!
Once they were dry he painted each rock, decided against the addition of glitter today and set them aside to dry.
When the paint had dried he stuck googly eyes on the rocks, some needed glue as the paint was still a little wet and the surfaces uneven. This was great counting practice as O decided how many eyes each monster should have.
You could take this further and add spots with stickers or glue wool on for hair, but O decided he liked them as they were (the yellow one is called Banana and one of the blue monsters is called Herbert, the rest remain unnamed).
