Window Drawing.

Can you draw? I don't know why I'd ask this question, as the answer is really quite irrelevant. The better question would be: Do you have windows in your house?

If you answered "No" (to the second question, remember the first one is moot), I'm sorry, there is nothing more I can do for you.

If you answered yes, good, we're off to a great start. Unlike your windowless loser counterparts, we can move on with this post. You see, it doesn't matter if you can draw to do this fun thing with your kids, you just need something to draw on.

Grab a dry erase marker. Better yet, pick up a pack of different colors. Then head to a window, and take your kids along. Uncap your markers, and have at it. See what you can imagine, right in your own front yard. Don't worry about cleanup either, with a tissue and a little water or glass cleaner, your art will rub right off.

Try this, use the sight-line as part of your drawing. You can draw whatever you like.

For Example:

A stick-figure man shoveling your driveway.

The Abominable Snowman offering you snow-cones.

King Ghidorah breathing fire at your neighbor's house for that insane security light that shines in your window with the burning light of a thousand suns... but I digress.

You could trace the cars parked across the road, the tree in your yard, or add a second story to your neighbors house. Draw whatever comes to your mind, and it doesn't matter if it's good or not. The idea here is just to have fun with it, use your imagination, and let your kids use theirs.

Who knows what you can come up if you only get started!
