Would you let your kids paint on the windows? We love decorating our windows and so I thought, "why not just paint directly on the glass?" It's a fun rainy day activity for the kids.
It makes a nice change of pace from paper. Plus the kids feel like maybe they are doing something a bit unorthodox. They love that! I mixed a small amount of dishwasher liquid in tempera paint and let Kiddo loose on the windows.
I used some painter's tape to create a frame border for him to work in and around. The effect was nice when I peeled it off. You could even use the tape to create a Mondrian window!
I love doing this when it is the weather is less than perfect. What a nice way to experience stormy, tempestuous weather -- making art.
Also, it's good for disguising dirty windows.
Not that I have any of those. (he he he)
