One night last week my smallest child was doing his best to avoid going to bed.
“I’m not going to bed… unless you wear the gwasses!”
“Ok” I said putting on the green lantern glasses… “now it’s bed time!”
Off he went to bed, but every time I even looked liked I was going to take of my glasses his eyes shot open.
“Leave. Them. On!” he demanded. By this stage I would have stood on my head if it helped him get to sleep so I left the snazzy green glasses on and took a quick instagram selfie to record the moment for posterity.
As I read through the funny facebook and instagram comments my obsession with printables flared and I decided then and there that I needed to make some crazy printable glasses to go with my stunning green pair.
Since then my study has been littered with scraps of paper and glasses prototypes, and, after much trial and error, I finally got them right!
This afternoon my four kids sat down to make crazy glasses!
To make your own crazy glasses all you need is my free printable crazy glasses template, which you can download here.
Then just print the two page pdf. You can either print straight onto some strong card, or print them on to regular paper and paste the pages onto some old cereal boxes or similar cardboard for support.
Choose your glasses and cut them out along with a set of arms. Measure how long the arms of the glasses need to be to comfortably fit your head and snip them off at the desired length. Fold the little tabs on the side of the glasses and tape the arms onto them.
Now all you need to do is decorate your crazy glasses and take your own crazy photos!
I’d love to see your crazy glasses selfies on instagram if you or your kids make them – just add the hashtag #pickleglasses so I can find them! Or feel free to share a photo on my facebook page
