This is a fun way for my kids to inject uniqueness and personality into their wardrobe. It doubles as an activity (especially good for older kids), and perfect for weekend fun or the summer school holidays.
What you need
White canvas shoes (I bought these shoes from Target for $8-$10)
Sharpie fabric pens (find them at places like Big W, Target, Officeworks, Spotlight)
1. Plan design
Before I let the girls loose on the shoes, I thought it would be good idea to give them a few guidelines in terms of what design may work on the shoes. I googled a few Sharpie shoe designs with them, and have included the simpler ones we found below, plus a list of other ideas.
- Music Notes
- Speech bubbles
I then let the kids go for it, and for the next half-an-hour, they drew.
The Finished Designs
I loved how the respective personalities of my girls shone through in their designs. Miss 6 is all rainbows and sunshine; Miss 9 is confident, and knew exactly what she wanted to do and what the finished product would look like; and Miss 11 is full of spunk and drew red clouds with blue lightning and green rain. Awesome!
The girls were stoked with the finished product. Can you tell?
