Like many of my activities, this sticky window was spur of the moment. I was trying to get ready for our family trip to Texas and my 2-year-old had already watched more TV than I care to admit. We needed an easy and fun activity. This sticky window flower garden craft was perfect. I had a bouquet of flowers that I was going to have to throw away before we left anyway so it was even better that we could use it for this. If you don’t have a bouquet of wilting flowers on hand you can use leaves, grass clippings, pine cones, etc… Go on a nature walk and see what will stick!
- Gather your materials. You will need some contact paper, painter’s tape, scissors, and flowers or other bits of nature. I used markers to make some stems and the start of the mural but it was totally NOT needed. I wish I had not done this. The flowers and sticky window are enough. I would have put up another sheet of contact paper but it’s expensive and my daughter was waiting.
- Tape the contact paper on the window. The way I do this is to peel a little bit back and tape the top. The sticky side is facing YOU. The carefully peel the backing off. Tape all the other sides down with the painter’s tape.
- Prep the flowers in a bowl or container for your child. My daughter loved just playing with the flowers, pulling them apart and investigating. I loved watching her.
- Stick the flowers on. She was totally into this and it was such a pretty addition to our kitchen.
