These giant “shoes” can be decorated according to your child’s obsession du jour (ballet slippers, robot feet, replicas of Mommy’s favorite wedges). They’re great for clomping around during a silly dance party or a goofy relay race. And younger kids can use them to practice their bow-tying skills.
What You Need
- Scissors and utility knife
- rubber bands
- tape (transparent
- or colored)
- gift wrap or decorative paper
- kraft paper
- 2 adult-size shoe boxes
- construction paper
Follow These Steps
Cut a semicircular hole from one end of the top of each lid. (It should be just large enough for a child to slide in her foot.)
Decorate each box and its lid with tape or paper. Using a utility knife, punch small holes, then thread the laces.
Line the side rim of each lid with glue and return it to its box. Secure with tape as needed.
