Smarty – October Spooky Eye Portraits

October

It’s October and while the ghosts and ghouls are out to play, we wanted to work on labeling emotions and socio-dramatic play with our kids by making spooky eye portraits. Using ping pong balls you get the illusion the pictures eyes are following you! Creeeepy! And, using props and costumes to take the photos is a great learning opportunity for our kids to act out different emotions and expressions. Enjoy!

If crafting isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there isn’t much work involved. The end result is a wonderful inexpensive alternative to commercial magnetic calendars. To download the template, visit the Autism Live facebook page. Once you have the template, print, cut and paste! Want to make it even faster? You can print directly to a printable magnet sheet, like these from Avery. Mount your calendar on the fridge or put it on a metal cookie pan for a mobile calendar.
