No Mess Window Painting
It’s funny how the dynamic of our day is different when I have two toddlers versus just mine. She is a really sweet little girl, almost two years old, and hardly has any tantrums, but I still feel like I accomplish so much less with two.
I am trying to make it a point to get out at least one time a day and two if I’m lucky but afternoon play dates are hard because we live in a heavy traffic area.
Today we had an early nap which made the ‘post nap slump’ extra long. The kids were a little crankier than normal and I just really wasn’t up to taking a walk or loading them in the car. SO we had to get creative. I’ve seen this circulating around Pinterest and it looked pretty fun and simple so I decided to try it out! I’m thinking we can keep them up for a week or so (or until my husband makes me take them down!)
Here’s how to make your own:
- Obtain medium or large Ziploc bag, fill bag with one or two colors of paint. (Okay don’t ‘fill’ it…leave some room for creativity.)
- Tape bag to window.
- Let the fun begin! I actually had about as much fun as the kiddos did. I like squishing it from the bottom up and then drawing shapes and pictures with my fingers. It’s a great learning tool for older kids too! They can write out letters, numbers, or draw shapes in the paint. Best part: No mess!
Taking care of two kids is no walk in the park! Crafts like this no mess window painting can really turn a day around. Maybe you will even have a chance to drink some coffee hot? Try it and let me know how it goes!
