Day 31: Make Your Own Window Paint with Aprons and Apples

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 Aimee Larsen 7 Comments

Thanks Aimee for letting me share this quick and easy tutorial for window paint.  
I am excited to be here! My name is Kristy Neeley and I have 4 kids aged 1, 2,4 and 6.  We have a good time and they keep me busy!  I also write a fun crafty, healthy, DIY blog at .  
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 signs 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!
