Lately we've had a lot of birds flying into our windows and although none have perished, we have had a number of stunned little ones who end up laying on our porch (or flying around in the studio!).
And so, we decided to do something about it by creating some window clings.
This is a great activity for kids (and adults) of all ages. All you need is some plastic (we used paper protectors that you would put into a binder) and some fabric paint. (It's important that you use fabric paint and not regular paint.)
It's a good idea to add a drop or two of dishwashing liquid to the fabric paint before you start using it, although I have to admit, we skipped that step :)
Here's how our window clings came together...
