Window Graffiti

I never thought seeing pictures all over my window would be lovely. That was before I discovered Crayola window crayons. Have you seen these? Maybe I'm way behind. My mom bought these for the kids and they LOVE them.


It does take some elbow grease to clean but it's worth it.

They love to draw faces and look through them.





I think part of what makes it so fun is me letting go. Letting them make a mess. They can hardly believe they are allowed to draw all over the windows!  I will admit the first time they used them I did cringe a bit but I quickly got over it. 
I recommend them, we are having a great time!
Happy drawing!

Okay,I have to buy some of this for my nephew! I would've loved drawing on the windows (with actual permission) when I was little. Y'all are creating some awesome memories!

LOVE this!! We have a sliding glass door that this would be perfect for! My son gets to go to the beach with my sister this week so this will be a perfect treat/activity for Bella to do while he is gone. Thanks for sharing it!!

What a way for the kids to express themselves. I can imagine I would be hesitant at first. My kid use to have bathtub crayons and it was hard to clean. Hopefully this will come off easier.

Love those! I also love the kind for the bathtub!

Sooo fun! Lydia isn't quite there yet but once she is I'm sure these will be a hit and it's not like I don't already have paw prints all over my windows from the dogs!

I hadnt heard of them either until we found them at teh Crayola Factory on a family vacation a couple of summers ago. They have an entire wall where you can try them out in the museum...great fun and we bought them that same day.
The girls love them!

Totally chucked my kids' in the trash after the last time when it took like 50 paper towels and 50 minutes to clean up the mess...luckily I think they've completely forgotten about them!
