My husband made a comment the other day how it was still Easter in some parts of our house… ahem… it seems that this window decoration has been there since April.
So Kaya and I got to work.
I couldn’t take any pictures of the actual process, because it wasn’t really a toddler-friendly activity, but fun nonetheless.
We grated some wax crayons with a cheese grater, and arranged the tiny shavings randomly inside a laminator pouch.
These things are sharp – so it would really make more sense to do this with an older child – but Kaya had fun moving the shavings around and arranging them ever which way.
Then I put the laminator pouch onto the ironing board and covered it with a tea towel, and then ironed the whole thing on a low setting until everything stuck together nicely. Kaya’s job was to check everything now and then, with pauses to let the pouch cool down first – which required patience. Now there was another challenge for this little one!
Then we cut out circles and attached them to our windows with blu tack.
