Window stickers

I'm always looking for new ways to get the little guy creating and playing. The other day at the dollar store, I came across a package of foam in a variety of colors. Best of all, you guessed it, it was only a dollar. The price was right, so I brought it home with us. When one of my sisters came to visit later on that week, we both sat down and cut out all different shapes while gossiping about reality television. The little guy would put in request for different shapes, like a butterfly and a car, and we would attempt to do our best. Mostly, we stuck to the most basic shapes, though.

Once we were finished, I packed them away. I waited for a while, and one rainy morning, I showed Logan the shapes.


I supplied him with a paintbrush and a cup of water, and he went to town. He brushed the water onto the shape, and then would stick it onto the window.

Here is his version of a flower.

He loved this activity so much, that I set up a small center at a window in my house. I put down a bunch of towels (but he was careful not to spill) and he decided to decorate the window in our dining room.

He went back to this activity throughout the day.

These would be great to take into the bath tub too! I think that these will definitely be getting a lot of use at our house!
