How to Set Up Eyeball Drop
Gather your supplies.
I set Eyeball Drop up for my 20 month old twins when I need to get a few things done in the kitchen.
Unfortunately, I only had one cardboard tube at the time so I taped it up on the wall and placed all the eyeballs I had into a bowl underneath and invited them to drop them down.
To help get them started, I dropped one down myself and they were immediately keen to try themselves.
Fine Motor Halloween Activity Hit
With just one cardboard tube this activity only lasted about 10-15 minutes but if you add more tubes to create a more complicated run for the eyeballs to take it would entertain for much much longer!
