Blinking/ moving LED eyes? Answered

I'm currently working on a project that needs two (2) eyes about the size of half dollars.
My goal is to have these eyes "blink" in a way, whether if it's the LEDs blinking or the actual eyes blinking.
Maybe Arduino? 

I'm not good with Arduino at all (yet), so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I had made a robot head which had moving eyes :
See it @:

basically it had 2 servos in the box on which were stuck 2 table tennis balls.

If required i can give you the code and tell you how to connect it to the Arduino.
for eyebrows you can put another servo in the middle with a kind of curved flap so that it closes when required to act like an eyebrow.

Arduino has a servo project in there library with code and everything you need to tweak the program.

Do you want the blink to be triggered by time, or by an external stimulus, such as movement or sound?

How robust does it need to be - will it be part of a display, or carried by a violent toddler?

It will be a portrait of someone with moving and blinking eyes.

My goal is to have it blink and look around from time to time, but only when I turn it on.

Hope this helps!

I've never made anything like it, but I'd guess at some simple timer circuit triggering a servo to move an eyelid.
