Summer is such a busy time for our family and my biggest struggle as a mom is staying prepared. Whether we are rushing out the door or playing at the park, the one thing that happens is one of my children starts in with the “I’m huuuungry”. One thing I have learned is to be prepared and be creative when it comes to my children.
Glad Press’n Seal is one of those products I find myself using a lot before leaving the house. Whether I’m packing a bowl of cold grapes for the park and need an airtight seal to keep them fresh or cleaning up after lunch Glad Press’n Seal is one of those products that really works and you never have to think twice about it. Instead of wasting plastic bags one thing I like to do is make snack pouches to take on the go.

It seems the more and more the grass turns brown and it heats up here in California are starting to spend more and more time indoors. As a parent I am always on the lookout for simple craft ideas. Our girls are very creative so when our oldest said she wanted to make stained glass to brighten up our windows I knew Glad Press’n Seal was a simple way to make it happen.

Glad Press N Seal Stained Glass Craft
What You Need:

  • Glad Press’n Seal
  • black pipe cleaners
  • puffy paint
  • scissors
  • stained glass paint
  • paint brushes

To get started you will need to make the shape with the pipe cleaners that you would like to create.  Cover one side with Glad Press’n Seal and fold over. Use your scissors to cut off the excess seal. For some of these shapes we used paint inside the seal. This also works really well for that stained glass effect.

The puffy paint helps serve as an outline and adds that fun bright color. You can also use the opalescent paint to paint between the lines.

These will need to dry for 12 hours so allow them to dry overnight and hang them on the windows in the morning. It’s a simple and fun craft idea and our girls had a great time making different shapes and patterns. Glad Press N Seal Stained Glass Craft Window Decor
