This simple drawing prompt for preschoolers uses a dry erase board and some adhesive googly eyes!

I have used googly eyes as a drawing prompt before on paper – I mentioned it in my post which is completely dedicated to my love of googly eyes! This activity takes it one step further and uses a white board so that different artwork can be created. It ALSO means that my son doesn’t waste paper with endless scribbles – a habit that he’s developing and that I’d rather avoid.
- Tabletop dry erase board (Expo don’t seem to make this any more – this lap board may be a good alternative)
- Crayola fine line dry erase markers
- Baby wipes and paper towels (because we don’t have a white board eraser!)
- Adhesive craft foam googly eyes (ours were from the All Eyes On You set from Creatify – available at Target. Regular adhesive googly eyes could be used instead)
I started off the activity by drawing a silly monster around one of the pairs of eyes. F embellished it for me!
He drew his own monster – carefully pointing out the arrow to me, showing the pizza he had also drawn. Guess what this monster ate?
We wiped everything off and he had the board to himself. These are two people in a tunnel. Apparently. 🙂
The next day I peeled off the eyes and applied new ones. These seemed to be people (or monsters?) in a bigger tunnel.
He removed all this and started again. But he had a twist for me! He turned this into a game of Hangman, where if I guessed the wrong letter he removed one of the stripes! I didn’t see that coming!
This set now sits in my office so that he can get creative any time he likes. The adhesive eyes are really easy to remove. Who knows what he will create next?!?
