We have entered the dreaded rainy season in Seattle. And when I say it's the dreaded rainy season, the only thing dreadful about it, is that we get stuck inside for long periods of time. Coming from Las Vegas, the rain is a very nice treat, even if it happens most the winter. We don't typically get tired of the rain until the tail end of it, which is nice!
I do feel like some days we run out of things to do inside though. We play games, we color, we draw, we count, we cook, we nap, we watch movies...etc etc etc. I am always looking for new things to add to our rainy day arsenal, so when Meredith from The unOriginal Mom posted in our Silhouette group about window cling vinyl I about peed myself with excitement!
And really when I bought the stuff for the faux stained glass activity I did with the kids recently, I was actually trying to find this stuff but I just wasn't looking in the right places!
To make your very own window cling scenes you are going to need to buy the window cling vinyl, I got mine from Amazon. After it arrived, I downloaded a few scenes from the Silhouette store. Oh and I got a couple robot files too, because who doesn't love a robot?
The robots were awesome because all the pieces were interchangeable with each other. And as soon as I put them on the window, Lucy was ready to go.
And she was here all morning doing these. What I loved the most about this vinyl was that it also stuck to itself so the kids could design their robots also.
When I did the snow globe one and the fall scene, I was at a loss as to what color to use. See the limitation with the window cling vinyl was that it only came in a few colors. But after a few minutes of thinking, I decided to use regular vinyl on top of the window cling vinyl. This way I was able to have lots of different colors, like the light brown of the fence post or the sparkly blue on the snow globe. The down side to this though was that the window cling vinyl didn't stick to the regular vinyl, but we still made it work.
I also have to tell you that one of the hardest things to do in life is take pictures of glass and things on glass. Getting the picture above were difficult so I moved my little snowman to a framed piece of glass which was equally as difficult to photograph as it was trying to get a picture of this on the window. But in this fashion, I can change the backgrounds at any time so they fit in with the window clings! Want your own snowman? I'm giving you a free cut file that you can use!

I'm already thinking of doing a farm and maybe some dinosaurs, what other scenes can you think of?
