How to paint a shoe - fun crafts with kids


So, following on from my last post, the same daughter decided she wanted to decorate a pair of shoes. We found some cheap canvas shoes in the sales, collected all the acrylics and fabric paints we have lying around, and she got going. She taped around the sole, and has nearly finished.


She's working on making a night sky with stars - so I'll post a finished picture when it's done. But this is such an easy and fun activity. She used make up sponges to dab the paint on and mix it to the colour she wanted. The shoes were just £3!
