Step-by-Step Instructions:

Start by outlining each Leaf Shape with a permanent marker (this is an optional step).  If you will be doing this craft with small children, we recommend having an adult outline the leaves 1st and having kids start on the next step (adding the wiggle eyes).

Fine Point Sharpie Markers work great on craft foam, just be careful not to smear the ink while it dries on the foam (it dries quickly, but not instantly).  Any permanent marker will work, including the ones made for craft foam, however, we prefer Sharpies:)

Next add Assorted Size Wiggle Eyes to each Foam Leaf.  We used sticky back wiggle eyes, just peel and stick the wiggle eyes onto each leaf.
