Quite a while ago, I made these foam shapes for my kids and let them stick the shapes to the window with water. Big success! At the time, my youngest daughter Ava was only six months old, and therefore had no interest in participating. Since then, she has showed great interest in sucking the water out of the brushes but not so much in the foam shapes. So, I thought of another way of using the same shapes that might entice her into playing with them. Make collages!
To do this with your kids, put a sheet of clear contact paper onto a table/window sticky side facing up, and use masking tape to border the edges so little eyes can clearly see where the contact ends. Provide foam shapes for them to stick as they wish, and that's about it! Of course, you can use anything you want for a collage, but I found foam to work really well because Ava could reposition it time and again without it ripping (like paper).

pretty fun too!

We'll definitely do this one again. Maybe it's time to make some new shapes...
