Looking for a super fun indoor boredom buster?
Let your kids paint the windows!
Yes. You read that correctly. Let them paint your windows!
Window painting is so much fun and not as messy as you think!
Our window paint recipe only has two ingredients and is easy to clean up. Really.
Window Paint Recipe:
- washable tempera paint
- dish soap
The second ingredient is soap, don’t you feel better about trying it already?
Squirt some paint some paint into a container and add the dish soap. The ratio is about 2/3 paint to 1/3 dish soap. I used 3 squirts of dish soap with this amount of paint.
Use a paint brush to mix the paint and soap together and you’re ready to paint. I put down a vinyl tablecloth on our wood floor under the window to catch any stray drips.
You can also paint outdoors on the outside of the windows if the thought of painting windows in your house is anxiety inducing. Then all you need to do is hose everyone off!
The bright colors look so pretty on the windows!
When your ready to clean them off all you need are a couple of wet paper towels to wipe off the paint and then window cleaner to get rid of any streaks.
