Window Art

  • foam shapes (non-adhesive)
  • bowl of water
  • paint brushes
  • window or sliding glass door

Window art with foam shapes and water is simple to set up, it’s mess free, and it’s a great way to entertain the kids at home on a hot summer day. The kids can choose their foam pieces and all that's needed is water to brush  either directly onto the window or on the foam pieces. They’ll then press their shape against the glass window or sliding glass door, and voila instant art! The foam adheres very well to the window so no need to worry about any damage.

All of our shapes stayed on the window, and we were playing for about an hour on this day. You can create your art on a window or a mirror, or you could do what we’re doing, and use a sliding glass door. Depending on your foam shapes, you could also play around with patterning, or your child could group shapes, sizes and colours.  You could use foam letters or numbers to work on early literacy and math skills or… simply play!
