You can keep your child busy in the backseat rearranging the scene and the stories forever!
This is a great project for art-challenged types like myself.

Small Photo Album (storage of the clings)
The hardest part of this project is trying to photograph the results on the window.
Step 1: Step 1:Layout
Be aware that vinyl cling paper feeds differently in various printers. It is a good idea to avoid taking images right to the top edge until you know how your printer will feed.
Step 2: Step:2 Sizing
It is good to remember that little hands (three to seven years old) will be handling these clings. If you make items smaller than 1.5 inches it will be hard for them to paste them on the windows because the cling will curl at the edges slightly.
Step 3: Step 3:Get in the Story!
Include pictures of everybody in the family - paste Dad's head onto a superhero, Mom can be the Queen. The possibilities are endless.
Note: You should only get worried if it seems every story ends with Dad in the mouth of the T-Rex!
Step 4: Step 4: Print and Dry
Set your ink jet printer to best photo quality and select Glossy photo paper, or transparency.
There are several brands of printable vinyl out there and they all react differently. It is best not to handle the cling when it first comes out just in case there is any ink still drying.
Step 5: Step 5: Cut Out
How close you trim the edges to the shape is a matter of cutting skill and preference. Keep in mind the age of your child when determining the final cut size. The smaller the fingers, the more material you want to give them to grab on to.
Step 6: Step 6: Storage
Step 7: Step 7: Let Them Play!
If you print up enough parts and pieces, the stories can go on for quite a while.
