God’s Eye Craft

I am always on the look out for a cute easy project for my students.  I teach knitting after school once a week for an hour and a half.  This session my students are all between the ages of 8 and 10.  It is hard for them to sit still and knit for the entire time so I try to break it up in the middle with an easy fun craft.  This past week we made God’s Eyes.  I used to make them all the time as a kid, but now a days kids don’t have the time to sit and just chill.
