Do you have trouble coming up with creative ideas for your kids to do? I have a hard time coming up with new things. I am not sure where I came up with this idea or where I got it from but we still like to do this window art. I admit I don’t like to clean up messes and play with paint and in general just make messes with the boys. This idea was wonderful when G was first learning to color. He would get crayon everywhere. On the window it didn’t matter all I had to do was clean it afterwards.
Simply just tape pictures or blank pieces of paper to the window and let them draw. I would always put a blanket underneath where he was standing in case one fell and to keep the extra crayons on. To this day if we color he always remembers to get a blanket to put down under him.
I love this too because a lot of times I will save them and send them to grandparents and also I use them for birthdays as a card from G. He loved to make cards for people and who doesn’t love homemade artwork from a child?!
Is there a particular craft that you love to do with your child? Do you have an old standby for a rainy day? Do you have any that are not very messy?
