A pack of foam sheets from the Dollar Tree...

... is all it takes for hours of fun and a dazzling display of color on your windows. Just spray water on the glass door/window, give the kids pre-cut shapes to work with and sit back and marvel at the leaps of imagination a child's mind dares to take on this mega size canvas. Better still, finish off that mystery novel you were struggling to find time for ;)

 Those are a tree with colorful leaves, a Jedi and Yoda by the currently Star Wars obsessed son and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
And the collection keeps getting bigger and bigger for hours of fun!

Easy, inexpensive and loads of fun even for very young kids! We also did this activity at Chica's weekly playdate and it was such a big hit with kids ranging from 1-1/2 years to 5 years and later enjoyed by kids as big as 7-8 years.

Putti Prapancha is where we got this idea initially! The kids had something similar in India but we had forgotten about it and its on her blog that I was reminded of it again. Thanks PP :)
