Eye-bombing (the new yarn-bombing)!

I saw this great post at flutterflutter last week which was all about ‘eye-bombing’ and ever since reading it I have had an overwhelming desire to stick googly eyes to absolutely everything. It’s a great activity for the kids too!

Happy Friday all! x

    check out “gooly eyes” by Caspar Babypants on Youtube- it’s a hilarious and catchy song (and video). My 1.5 year old is constantly singing it, and wanting to put eyes on everything.
