When I was a little kid, I had one of those lap desks where one side is a beanbag pillow and the other a desk! When I get bored…aka CREATIVE…I’d doodle on it with my color pens and then squeeze Elmer’s glue on top to make plastic rainbow stained glass globs!
So with J’s love for colors and doodling, I thought we’d try this out!
What you need:
- Washable color pens
- Elmer’s Glue
- Plastic flat surface
- Creative toddler
Get your selection of color pens out and find a plastic surface that you don’t mind doodling on! We used the lid off of one of our plastic storage bins.
Then you doodle a blob of colors. Hearts, squares, circles, amoeba, etc. Squeeze out a blob of glue in the middle and let it spread. You can blow on it to help it spread. Make it thin, or make it thick. Either way, it should dry overnight.
J got distracted and started to draw a quetzalcoatlus haha. Look at the wingspan!
After we’re done with our colorful globs of glue, I placed the lid on top of our fridge to dry out overnight. Also to keep little hands off of it 😉
Just remember it’s up there! Luckily my son has a memory of an elephant….
Here’s the end result!
J loved it! He’s still playing with them now. Looking at the pretty colors, the little bubbles that form inside and the smooth, shiny surface they had.
