She loves them.
I was going broke buying them until I remembered that back when I was a Girl Scout, one of the other leaders had made re-usable window cling-on stickers out of Elmer's glue.
I searched and searched the Internet and found this idea.
I tore a page out of Carolyn's favorite coloring book for my template.
This is supposed to be a bear (and yes, there is such a thing as a purple bear):
And this is a whale:
Carolyn really seemed to like the whale (the bear was not quite dry at time of publishing):
The light through them is really pretty:
Things I didn't know/would do differently/really liked:
1. If I recall correctly, the ones the Girl Scout leader made were a bit more gummy and therefore, stuck to the window a little better. I'll keep looking for that one because I liked the texture better.
2. It doesn't take very much food coloring to color a full bottle of glue. Just so you know.
3. This takes a lot more glue than I thought it would. Had I known how much, I would've bought one of those jugs of glue instead of individual bottles.
4. It's pretty difficult to distribute the glue evenly on the plastic cover sheets - it kept retracting in so the middle is really gluey and the outside isn't.
5. That being said, I really like how it's kind of light in some places and darker in others. It almost makes me look like an artistic genius.
6. It takes a hell of a lot longer than 12 hours to dry.
7. Because it takes so long to dry, if you don't have counter space available for drying, I wouldn't recommend this (I eventually had to hang them on the front of the refrigerator so I could fix dinner. The bear cling-on started to run, so I had to whip it off before it dripped right off the plastic sheet).
8. They stick to the window really well and are easily removable - for adults. Carolyn had a hard time getting a good seal and then pulling it back off because of how thin it is.
9. Carolyn twisted and pulled on the whale though, and it seems virtually indestructible.
