Are you looking for a rainy day craft activity that doesn't make too much mess, but gives the kids hours of fun?
You might want to try this little activity, and let them decorate your lounge room or dining room windows with some cut outs made from craft foam.
"Popette" had a great time recently creating a little park scene. We had made two little girls (one was her, and the other her best friend) playing on a swing, and slippery dip. She had a great time directing Mummy on what shape to cut out, while she applied water to the window with a paintbrush and stuck on her shapes! Easy peesy!
The great thing about this activity is that they can re-use the shapes over and over again, and if they apply too much water you can mop it up with a chux! So you are cleaning the window at the same time as playing, lol!
All you need is:
Craft foam (can be bought from craft stores, Spotlight or Lindcraft)
Suitable age group: 2-5yrs
Estimated time: 15 mins (if Mum or Dad helps cut out the shapes)
Messiness factor: low
