Small Kids Moment: Valentine’s Day Window Art

By Nichole |

My daughter and I have done our fair share of crafts together.

I’ve loved some and have been disappointed by others, but I never thought I’d enjoy a project as much as I loved making the glitter play dough last month.

But yesterday, glitter play dough became our second favorite project.

My friend Merry recently shared with me a recipe for homemade window clings. I loved how hers turned out so much that I couldn’t wait to make them with Katie. We both absolutely loved this project!

When I have all of the ingredients on hand and clean up is this easy? I’m a happy mom.

Although our window clings are Valentine’s Day themed, you could do these for any holiday or even just because.

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

  • white school glue
  • liquid dish soap
  • food coloring
  • glitter (optional)
  • bowls
  • paintbrushes
  • wooden skewer (optional)
  • plastic page protector
  • template (we found our heart template here)

And here’s what you’ll do:

    I made this window clingy recipe and they turned out so cute! However, they did not cling (stick) to the window for me!? I made some thick & some thinner and in various sizes, and none of them would cling to the window! What did I do wrong?

  10. Meredith Carroll says:
