We love a good DIY project here at The Inspired Treehouse, especially one that’s cheap and easy!
We think this one could be a really fun idea for an occupational or physical therapy session, or for a teacher to make and keep on hand in the classroom, or even to try with your kiddos at home!
We created a bunch of different shapes and colors and my kids were fascinated by how well they stuck to our windows and mirrors at home and at our office. The best part? You’ll only need two simple supplies!!
What you’ll need:
-wax paper or parchment paper
What to do:
-Use the puffy paint to draw different solid shapes or designs onto the wax paper or parchment paper. You’ll want to use enough paint to make a pretty solid shape, but try not to make a big puddle because it will take forever to dry!
-Allow your sheet of puffy paint shapes to dry for a day.
-Carefully peel the shapes off of the wax paper and use them to decorate windows, mirrors and other vertical surfaces!
-Don’t miss the window cling movement game below! A great way to combine fine motor and gross motor skill building in one fun activity!
-Storage tip: Stick your window clings to the inside of a freezer storage bag when you’re not using them!
How to change it up:
-Have kids decorate a window or mirror with lots of your window clings. Then, call out various movement-based directions (e.g. Touch a blue square with your elbow, touch a yellow star with your nose).
Make it even more challenging by combining two different directions (e.g. Touch your right elbow to a square and your left thumb to a circle).
-Learn more about why it’s so important to have kids work and play on a vertical surface!
