Drawing Prompts for Kids with Eye Stickers and Markers

This post contains affiliate links.It turns out that eye stickers make great drawing prompts for kids.

Who knew?!

We have a roll of eye stickers that is completely awesome in every way.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

We’ve always been big fans of googly eyes and frankly I didn’t see the point of eye stickers for a long time. I just thought that googly eyes trumped them in every way.

But! It’s not true at all.

Eye stickers rock.

And I want to thank Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps for recommending eye stickers enthusiastically enough that I gave them a try. (We were discussing favorite kids’ arts and crafts materials on her podcast with Amie Plumley of Sewing School.)

I ordered a roll of eye stickers from Discount School Supply and we’ve been using them ever since.

The roll is large (big enough for a classroom!) so we’ve been gifting strips of eye stickers as well. :)

Here’s a recent art activity that we did with the eye stickers as drawing prompts.

MATERIALS

INSTRUCTIONS

Okay, so here are the super fancy, detailed instructions…

Drawing Prompts for Kids with Eye Stickers

1.  Place a number of eye stickers on a sheet of paper in any configuration desired.

2.  (Optional) Add a few words or question, to inspire or direct the drawing somewhat.

3.  Hand the eye sticker drawing prompt to your child to draw.

And yeah, that’s not my child in the photo above. That’s Fiona, a friend and fellow sticker enthusiast.

Note :: While I set up the initial eye sticker drawing prompts for my daughters and their friends, they added the stickers themselves for all subsequent eye sticker drawings.

Because stickers are too fun to let someone else be in charge of them.

We used black paper for some of the artworks, combined with white pencils (from a pack of colored pencils)…

    I love that your guinea pig hangs out while your children create. Brings back sweet memories of when my girls were small and we had a guinea pig that looks a lot like yours!

    Love this! I’ve been debating getting googly eyes for arts & crafts and just can’t do it because they are such a choking hazard. Even though my toddler will turn 3 next month he still likes to put things in his mouth and even supervised I just won’t take the risk with googly eyes. I can’t wait to order some of these stickers!
