When children are young their minds are full of wonder. Boys are especially rambunctious and ready to investigate every nook and cranny. Feed off that adventurous nature and encourage imaginative play by making these fun spy glasses! They’ll love threading the beads and bending the stems into place. Look out James Bond, there’s a new spy in town!
While my kids have outgrown cute projects like this, I still have some fun now and then visiting my neighbor Debra and her grandson. He looks so handsome in his new specs doesn’t he? What a cutie!
To make these glasses you’ll need some craft paint. I like CraftSmart, you can get it at Michaels Crafts. It’s very economical, usually less expensive than other brands, but better quality than your typical children’s paint.
You’ll also need two cups from a cardboard egg carton, some pipe cleaners and pony beads.
Encourage your little ones to use their imagination, while they are still young enough to be blessed without a care in the world! :)
