Googly eyes and balloons make for a perfect match. Stick a couple on a balloon and you get instant cuteness! I made mummies with mine, but you could make monsters, aliens, Frankenstein, Dracula, a witch, you name it. Just use different colored balloons and a Sharpie marker to fill in a few more details.

In addition to the goggly eyes, I just wrapped around a piece of white crepe paper to “mummify” the balloon. Although Stella and Hazel like to call these “mommy balloons”. 😉
