My children love to use googly eyes in their creative artwork. They add an eye-popping touch (ha ha) to any creature that we are creating. The Sweet Bee often skips the creature creating part and is most content with a bottle of glue and pile of googly eyes.
Shhh...don't tell, but I always go back later once the glue has dried and pull off the eyes from her artwork and return them to the jar to be used another day. This applies to buttons and beads also. Then we always have plenty of googly eyes on hand!
