Do you miss our Paint Window in Ella’s Art Studio? We do, too! Make your own at home, using water-based art supplies! 


  • A window 
  • Water based markers 
  • Washable paint – we like Tempera Paint, but Watercolor also can work! 
  • If using paint: 
    • Small cups 
    • Paint or sponge brushes 
    • Old sheet or towels to be a drop cloth, if you feel it’s needed 
    • Chair or stool, if the window is high up for your child 


This activity is limited only by your – and your child’s – creativity!  

  • Lay down the optional drop cloth and set up the stool if necessary. 
  • If you’re using paint, put a little paint in each cup and put a brush in each.  
    • We found that children can hold onto the cup, and it creates less chance of paint spillage.
  • Let your little get as creative as they would like! If you need some inspiration, some ideas could be: 
    • Can you paint your family? 
    • Can you paint your pet (or a desired pet)? 
    • Can you paint what you see through the window?
