My Wish Pet

This was a lot of fun, watching kids make adorable little creatures based on color prints of real animal eyes. They were allowed to draw their own pet, or come up with a “wish” pet, as the 2nd grader did above.
1. I collected a bunch of low-res animal eye photos that I have uploaded HERE. Print on photo paper to get the best results. Students cut out the pair that they liked, and glued them to an art journal page.
2. The animal body was drawn around the eyes, traced with a Sharpie marker and colored with crayon.
Thank you Neariah, for letting me share your Wish Pets. I can’t help but smile when I look at them.

Thank you for this wonderful idea! Do you remember the types of animal eyes you used? I'm trying to guess each one of them, but am not certain on a few. Would love if you would be able to post a "eye key" so I can share with my students.
