Optical Illusion Portraits

Ever wondered how those portraits in scary movies seem to follow you with their eyes?  Here are simple instructions to create your own portrait with eyes that follow wherever you go...
Have an adult help you cut two oval holes in a paper plate.  

 Cut off the handle of a white plastic spoon and draw an eye with permanent marker in the spoon.

 Tape the spoons to the back of the plate so the eyes show through the holes.
 Turn over to see the eyes peering through your plate.
 Decorate your plate with a unique character drawing.
Notice how the eyes seem to follow you as you look at your portrait from different sides.

Have fun - we'd love to see your faces!  Email pictures to
