Kids love feathers and ours are no exception! I have seen numerous tutorials for window clings made with glue and I wondered if feathers could be added to the window clings and decided to give it a shot. I was not sure if I’d seen this before, but could not find it when I searched online. I used this window cling tutorial from eHow for the basic technique and then added a feather to see if it would work. I made one first to determine if the feather would be too heavy to ‘cling’, but it worked! I then had the kids make some and they absolutely loved it. The feathers appear to be floating on the window which is a really nice effect.
Feathers (found or purchased from a craft store)
Transparent plastic sheet (I used a laminating sheet)
Paper towel or light colored paper to use underneath sheet if surface is dark (optional)
Have your preschooler paint a thin layer of glue onto the plastic sheet in the shape of the feather underneath. Remind your preschooler to stay inside the feather with the glue. Once it dries, have your preschooler paint on another layer of glue. Do this for a total of four or more layers of glue. If glue goes astray on the plastic, wipe it off with a wet paper towel and a dot of soap. Then, dry it off. I did this a couple of times when the kids got too zealous with the glue.
