Want a fun craft to do with your kids this summer?

Then make custom sneakers with your kids!

Yesterday we were at, “Studio Art” in Watermill, New York with my children, & their cousins, making fab crafts.

The girls decided to make custom sneakers, which were so easy, & fun to make!

Simply get solid white fabric sneakers, a variety of fabric dye in bottles, a water bottle, newspaper, smock, rubber gloves, razor blade, glitter glue, & duct tape.

Directions:
1.) Place newspaper all over your work space.

2.) Next have your child put on a smock, & gloves to prevent staining.

3.) Place the pair of sneakers on top of the newspaper, & spray water all over them. (Remove the laces & put aside.)

4.) Have your child choose a few colors, then have them squeeze small dots all over. (The colors will bleed into one another, like tye dye.)

5.) Once they have covered the entire sneaker, let them dry completely for a few hours. Or an adult can dry them with a blow dryer, to speed up the process!

6.) Have your child wet the laces, & dye them the same way they did the sneakers, or choose one color.

7.) When the sneakers are completely dry, have your child paint the sneakers with fabric glitter, to give a different look.

8.) Next have an adult place the duct tape on the tip of the sneaker and shape with a razor blade.

9.) When the laces are completely dry, lace up the sneakers, put on & enjoy!

This craft is not only fun for girls, but boys too!

Then head to the nearest Crocs store, or shop online @ www.crocs.com!

Last year while walking in the city, my feet were killing me wearing new shoes!

Luckily I walked into the nearest shoe store which was, Crocs!

When you think of their line you think, clunky rubber shoes, right?

Well I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a pair of Carly flats, which became my new BFF!

As soon as I slipped them on my feet I was in heaven!

Lightweight, fun colors, as well as a great price point of under $50!

Crocs really makes great shoes for the entire family too!

From sandals for girls, to slip on shoes for boys & men, you too will like some of the fun styles they carry!

I keep a pair in the car, for those just in case moments!
