Easy-To-Do Window Mosaic Art - Art Designs
I've loved mosaics ever since I won an art contest in sixth grade for a mosaic rooster made of beans and seeds. Mounted on a thick piece of plywood and too heavy to hang, it was left behind when our family was transferred from California to Iran.

Vastly improve small-motor skills
Mosaic art for children is at an all-time high not only because children are fascinated with it, but also for the intrinsic educational value associated with it. Beyond the color and shape matching, like jigsaw puzzles mosaics also reinforce spatial sense and can vastly improve small-motor skills in children of all ages. Also, children are captivated by the thought of using tiny pieces to create a recognizable image.

Not too heavy
The problem with other mosaic art kits is that they often result in a project that is too heavy to be enjoyed or too childish in appearance. But the Easy-To-Do Window Mosaic Art sets by 4M are different from all others. Even after applying over 800 vibrantly-colored acrylic pieces, each Window Mosaic is light enough to hang from any window.

No show-through
Plus, because the design template is placed beneath the innovative see-through board, the "Stick-It-Easy" transparent pieces can be accurately placed but with no residual outlines remaining.

No Glue Needed
No glue is needed, as each mosaic tile is naturally tacky, and remains tacky even if you need to peel and reposition a piece. When the picture is complete, the template is removed and your family has a gorgeous mosaic to hang in your window.

Includes Over 800 Acrylic Pieces
4M Window Mosaics have great educational and aesthetic value and will occupy your young artist for hours. Each craft kit includes over 800 acrylic pieces, template, transparent board, four suction cups, and complete instructions.

Finished picture size 10.24 x 10.24 inches

Very pretty! January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Jodi in NC  
My 9-year-old daughter and I loved putting this together, it is very easy and fun to do. The only reason I didn't give this product five stars is that we didn't have enough of some colors and had to substitute some of the ones we had more than enough of. Otherwise, a fun product!

So pretty in window, daughter enjoyed!! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Erin  
Such a neat and pretty craft. It takes a little while to do and we've done it over a couple of days. You MUST tape the paper down so you keep everything properly aligned while you are sticking the mosaics down. They ARE Easy To Do Mosaics for 7 yr olds. I even enjoyed doing them with my daughter. I found it very relaxing. I like a craft that we WANT to keep rather than throw away because it takes up too much space or is ugly. This is neither and is perfectly pretty on daughter's bedroom window. This is great for a birthday gift too!

Relaxing, Reusable Art Project October 10, 2011
Reviewer: Tarasine Buck from Caldwell, ID United States  
I bought the flower mosaic kit for my 7-year-old, but our entire family enjoyed it! The pattern goes under the clear sheet where you actually place the mosaic, meaning that the pieces don't have to be placed exactly to cover the pattern--allowing success without perfect fine-motor control. The simple act of sorting and placing the squares was a very relaxing process for all of us! The pieces can be easily repositioned, increasing a young child's success. It means you can do the project over and over, too! The mosaic pieces also stick to many different surfaces. When one child was working on the actual mosaic, another could be putting pieces on another surface in his own patterns.

You definitely need to tape down the paper and the plastic sheet to keep everything lined up. Also, no matter how careful you are, you will find the mosaic squares everywhere! (They are not difficult to pick up, though.)

Great product! We will be purchasing more of these kits in the future.

Reviewer: Cheryl Spatz from Vancouver, WA United States  
This is an easy to do project with a beautiful result. My daughter enjoys seeing this hanging on her bedroom window. The completed project  would also make a nice gift for someone.
