Fancy up your Flip Flops ~ National Flip Flop Day is June 17th

Here are a couple of fun crafts to do with your kids.  National Flip Flop Day is June 17th.  I had decided I would let my daughter tie different colored ribbons to her flip flops one day and was at a loss for what I could let my son put on his flip flops.  I knew that he would want to do something to as he is always eager to do an art/craft project.  We were walking around Hobby Lobby when I spotted some Silly Bandz on the clearance aisle.  That was it!  I would let him tie those crazy Silly Bandz on his flip flops.  Most of you probably have a ton of them laying around your house anyways, so why not reuse them for something new.  This is a very simple craft that if your child can tie a knot, they can do it. 

Ribbon Flip Flops (we cut the ribbons so that they were 7 inches long and then tied them on.  I did do a little trimming at the end to even them out a little.)

My kids loved the finished product!  I hope yours do too!

  2. Great idea! I bet they are cute! It was amazing to me how both my kids sat there the whole time and finished them up. I did help Kaiden a little more, but he did one whole flip flop by himself.
