Smarty – October Spooky Eye Portraits

Like Autism Live on Facebook at http://facebook.com/autismlive

It’s October and while the ghosts and ghouls are out to play, we wanted to work on labeling emotions and socio-dramatic play with our kids by making spooky eye portraits. Using ping pong balls you get the illusion the pictures eyes are following you! Creeeepy! And, using props and costumes to take the photos is a great learning opportunity for our kids to act out different emotions and expressions. Enjoy!

Smarty, short for smart art, is a monthly series showing the ways in which you can use art to bond with your child while practicing skills they are working on in therapy. Its real life application of lessons they are learning.
