It's spring time and that gives us a chance to take a closer look at little creatures and appreciate colors and flowers. I thought it would be nice to make our own spring scene on the window.
I thought about what spring meant to me. Flowers, sun, birds, clouds, ladybugs and spiders. I am working on a couple more pieces that I'll add to it and I'm sure I will get special requests.
I cut out pieces out of foam and colored some of them to fit my image. I had foam on hand from separate purchases at The Dollar Store and Walmart.
I was busy cutting and making details on like things like spots for the ladybug and legs for the spider to list a few. It didn't take that much more effort but sometimes it makes me feel better when things I make can be identified without questions.
For these to stick on the window they need a little water. To minimize mess I added a small amount of water into a medicine cup and added a paper napkin. Just dip your finger in.
The medicine cup is just the right size for little fingers. Dip your finger in the cup then wipe the water onto the foam.
Stick the foam piece on the window. It's all about the placement. So of course the clouds are getting placed in the sky.
This is a super inexpensive way to keep your kids constructively busy. I will be using this as a learning tool for my son.
What color is this flower?
How many legs are on the spider?
What are the leaves attached to?
What shape is the sunrays?
We have previously played with foam pieces in the bathtub as well check that out here.
Next up I will be making a foam garden with vegetables! It will probably do better then a real garden tended by me.
