Step 1

Take an outlet cover and hot glue googly eyes onto some of the outlet covers. If you wish, you can also draw eyelashes on it.

Grab another outlet cover and draw a nose! Draw a small nose, a big nose, a flat nose, a silly nose. You can use the crayons for this.

step 3

Step 3 - DIY Clay Toy - A boy paints a socket purple and blue.  With white paper, acrylic paints and crayons.
To make the sockets even more colourful, you can paint the base.

Our experience with these DIY clay toys

Kneading toys must have several qualities: durable, versatile, non-choking, and most importantly, easy to clean!

We don’t really play with so many of the kids’ favorite things because it’s a hassle to clean them up afterwards. What I love about this toy option is that the play dough just falls off once it’s dry. No more scrubbing!!

  • I love it when the kids look at my “plan” for a project or activity and change it, add to it and create something completely new and unique. We were inspired to create face parts from reading by Allison, from No Time for Flashcard’s, clay activity day.
  • I intended to draw eyes, noses and even ears on our quilts. The kids had a better plan. They dug out the remaining googly eyes we had and the hot glue gun. We glued these to the covers. And instead of human noses, the children made pig noses. There was much snorting and giggling as they sculpted their faces and wore the “masks.”
  • We made several batches of plasticine.
  • Shown are some of our play dough batches. We use gel food coloring to get intense colors – liquid coloring just won’t cut it!

Add all those googly eyes to your playdough!

My only regret is that we didn’t have more googly eyes. They were in great demand – you can never have enough eyes!
