DIY window paint - Fast, cheap and fun!- guest blog

This is a tutorial I did a while back for My Homespun Threads.  In case you missed it I wanted to share it.
This is a quick and easy project do do with your kiddos this summer.  It will keep them entertained for hours!
This particular project is very easy and you may already have all the supplies you need on hand.  
We had a lot of fun with this!

To get started all you need are four baby jars, 4 colors of tempera paint and liquid dish soap and a paint brush to mix it all up with.

 First start by adding the desired color of paint to the jar.  


Now just add a little dish soap. 
 The more soap you use the thinner the paint will be and the easier it will be to wipe off when it is dry.
We liked a bit more paint then soap since our paints were kind of thin to start with.


Now have a ball! My kids sure did.
This also works great for sings on cars for sale or houses for rent.





A set of a few different colors made up in baby food jars makes a great gift for kiddos.  You can even add cute labels to the jar.  You can find a huge selection of free printable labels from my blog here.


 Hope you have as much fun doing this as we did!
