"Window Art" by the Klutz Company, is a fantastic craft for children and parents to do together.
The kit comes in a book form with dozens of different designs to be traced. It also comes with one bottle of black leading and five different colors of paint to fill in the "blanks".
The craft is pretty easy to do, but the results are absolutely adorable.
Step one is to pick a design, place the plastic sleeve over the area you wish to duplicate and using the black leading paint, simply squeeze out the paint and trace the outline of the design.
Step two is to let that outline paint dry for an hour or two. Because the leading paint is a little thicker, it's a bit harder to squeeze out, so I typically will do step one during the day and have it dry while my child is at school. Then it's ready to go when he is!
Step three is to use the various colors of paint to fill in the spaces between the black leading outline. You can use your imagination here...orange monkeys or green aliens, they all turn out great.
Step four is to let your project dry for 24 hours.
Step five is to peel your design off of the plastic and place it on the window. The resulting window art is a beautiful stained glass effect.
I love this craft because you have endless possibilities. Besides the designs in the book, you can also make your own designs or trace designs from a coloring book.
You can order more paint from Klutz, but I found extra paint, both black leading and many extra colors in my craft store. It wasn't branded Klutz, but it still worked great.
Use your imagination with this one!
