Magical Mystery Glasses

Magical Mystery Glasses craft

Looking for something (real or imaginary)? Create your own colorful magic glasses. You’ll be amazed at what you and your friends can find!

  • 1.

    What might you see if you had "magic" glasses? Read your favorite book about magic, finding lost items, or surprises. Then make your own imaginary glasses. These even have trendy half-lenses.

  • 2.

    Decorate your frames! Cover a small, plain paper plate with designs using Crayola® Gel Markers. Make dots, solids, stripes, checks, plaids, squiggles, or zigzag patterns.

  • 3.

    Tear out "lenses" and "arms." Ask an adult to help make the plate into glasses (an adult could use scissors to cut for children younger than 4 years). From the outer edge of the plate, make a short tear in to the plate’s inner circle. Tear carefully around the inner circle. Tear the inner circle in half, forming semicircles. Tear a small section from each semicircle. Use Crayola School Glue to glue semicircles together, forming half lenses. Air-dry the glue.

  • 4.

    Tear the outer edge of the plate in half to create arms for the glasses. Adjust the lengths to fit your face. Glue arms to lenses. Air-dry the glue.

  • 5.

    Trim nosepiece and arms for a comfortable fit. Wear the magic glasses with your friends to find shapes, colors, or maybe even fairies and elves! Everyone in your family will want a pair of these.
