Googly-eye easel starters in preschool

Googly eyes are always a big hit in preschool so I thought I would try using them as a fun easel starter…

As I have done for each of my easel starters, I glued the googly eyes to blank sheets of easel paint paper the night before so they would be dry in time for class the next day.  Then I set out the prepared googly-eyed easel papers as well as blank sheets of easel paper and a set of easel paint colors for the children to explore the easel painting process…

Unlike my other easel starters, I did not tie the googly-eye easel starters into any other part of our day. They were just ready to go for the taking.  I loved observing the different choices each child made as to what they wanted to do with this process…

Even children who don’t normally “opt-in” on the easel painting process decided to give the googly-eyed easel painting a try…

One of my favorite things is when two or more children stand at the easel and have a discussion about their paintings. These two boys stood together while one of them painted and the other one made suggestions along the way. They were truly collaborating on a piece of art which I happen to think is super, super cool…

The googly-eye easel starter resulted in some very fun paintings. The children were quite creative and took their time painting until they felt their painting was finished…

A super simple way to add a little fun to the easel painting experience…

I just have to add a few more photos below so you can see the broad range of creative expression we had going on here…

Simply beautiful!
