I think your windows are a little clingy…

At the end of each holiday season I rush out to the local stores and purchase decorations for the next holiday season. Without fail I always buy window clings because my kiddos love putting them on the windows.

A few years back, on a snowy day, I was looking for a fun project to do with them and came up with making our own window clings. Since then we have created them for various holidays (Valentine’s Day, Easter, Back to School, you name it!)

Here’s all the supplies you’ll need for this project:

Puff paint, Sharpie, index cards (or Post Its), sandwich baggies.

For the first step I use a Sharpie and (poorly) draw whatever design I want the cling to be on a Post It or index card.

I then place the design in a sandwich baggie and let my children trace the design with  Puff Paint. Please note: the Puff Paint will and does stain clothing so you may want to have them wear old clothes. It also helps to shake the Puff Paint so that the air bubbles are dispersed.

Encourage your kiddos to keep the tip of the Puff Paint off of the baggy and to squeeze the bottle lightly while making sure there is enough paint left on the baggy (so you can peel it off later.)

After waiting approximately 12 hours the Puff Paint will be dry and you can gently peel your masterpiece off and place onto your window! Once on your window they are easy to move or remove!

Have an idea for a good snowy day project? I’d love to hear about it in the comment section below!

Enjoy the moment,
