Today, the kindergarten class tried out our new window markers….

Only we didn’t use them on the windows  – instead we used them on the glass cover of a picture frame…

In some of the picture frames, we inserted pre-drawn shapes like circles or dots or even a house and the children drew over the shapes on the glass…

In other frames we left the white paper background blank so the children could just draw freely…

I thought trying the picture frames would be a nice twist to the use of window markers and learned a few things along the way…

Like it is easier to clean the glass frames if you use a baby wipe or a slightly damp paper towel. If you get it too wet it runs all over the place…

And if you buy too cheap of frames like I did, the glass starts to slide around a bit but that really didn’t keep us from enjoying the process. I got my frames at target for $1.

The children liked having a variety of backgrounds in the frames to use as a starter drawing…

Both boys and girls equally participated and took their time with their drawings…

The crayon version of the window markers gets all over your hands after a bit of heavy coloring but washes off easily with soap and water…

The children liked that you could prop up your frame for display after they finished coloring…

The colors were bright and vibrant and the children had a really good time with this idea…

I purchased the window markers, window crayons, and the frames all from Target….
