Christmas Window Art

With these Window Markers we decorated our front window. I now love the idea of a window as a blank canvas. It also eases my green guilt when I see piles of paper with only a few scribbles on each page. Here is what we did:

We used old stencils. I remember my mum using these with spray snow when I was a kid.

Daisy used the window markers to trace around the stencils, choosing her colours.

She carefully removed the stencils and touched up where necessary. She had missed parts but added them with help.

The only colour that was a little pathetic was white.

I drew a few holly leaves and berries and Daisy used it as a guide. We had a discussion about what holly is. We don’t have much growing here in Manitoba apparently it is flown in from California!

Creative interpretive holly. Love it!

Our windows are looking festive and the best thing; a wipe of a cloth and they are clean (probably cleaner than before!)

Window markers are only $2.95 and will be pulled out in our house when the windows are looking a little grubby. I think they would be great as an art extension activity in the classroom too.

A frugal arty activity and a reminder to occasionally clean the windows!
