We have LOVED making God’s Eyes with the kids time and time again. I would say that over the years, we have probably made them at least 4 times….. There is something so pretty about a God’s Eye craft, but it is also a wonderfully tactile and mesmerizing crafting experience – as you get into a weaving pattern. As my kids love making these so much (God’s Eyes are a perfect Summer Camp activity too), I was excited to spot some patterned god’s eyes or flower god’s eyes over on Honestly WTF. It hadn’t really occurred to me to add a weaving pattern to the craft and we were surprised how easy these were to do (once you got your head around the basic principle). When my kids had a go… they got so excited about the different patterns, that they started experimenting and “inventing” their own. Hooray what a result.
So here is an ADAPTATION (I think it is a bit easier) to Honestely WTF’s.
The kids LOVED having a go – they are 6 and 8yrs and managed really well:
