So I'm not really great at following patterns. I'm actually lazy. You know how they say measure twice, then cut once. I struggle with that. Anyway, these were really easy without using a template. All you need is colored foam, string and glue. Pretty simple. My eye holes weren't perfect the first time so I just trimmed them until they were big enough to fit around their eyes. We even made superhero watches and a superhero shielf. I love foam.
