Sensory Play – Clean Window Paint

Lifestyle / Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

I was trying to think of a fun way to utilize the sunshine that we get to enjoy right now with this weather. It’s still rather cold outside, but that sun makes my days so much better. Yes, so, I remembered reading this post here which was inspired by this pin, and thought Gregory might enjoy it. So while he was down for his afternoon nap, I got to work and set up this fun window painting activity.

It’s basically a ziploc bag filled with paint, taped to a window. Then you can finger paint on the windows without any mess. It looks like a lot of fun, and when Bean is older we can practice drawing more useful things like letters and numbers. I played with it before he woke up and had fun drawing smiley faces and writing ourRADhouse, but it didn’t last long enough for a picture. This wouldn’t be an activity for an overly hot day. The paint would just run and not hold any finger artwork.



So as you can see, it was entertaining, just not in the way it was originally planned. Gregory decided he wanted to eat it, and it was funny. He didn’t quite understand the whole drawing aspect, which was fine I guess. It just tells me that we will need to revisit this activity again in a week or two. We attempted this three days in a row, every time ended in Gregory trying to eat through the plastic or he pulled the tape off. Maybe we’ll try it how the original pin suggested, on a flat surface. It was pretty rad, if anyone tries this and it works with your little one, let me know in the comments!
