I have just bought some cheapy trainers for the gym, I remember when I was in school everyone making these shoe boxes to send off to children in other countries. I also remember not having a shoe box and taking in a tin of mixed fruit. Bad day when you're 8. Anyway I thought it would be fun to make our boring old shoe box into something a bit more fun.
Tiny hands starting to put the glue mix ( 1 part water 2/3 parts glue ) and the ripped up tissue paper (poundland) on the box. It was a little messy, but she has an apron so all is good.
All the ripped up colours.
All the bubbles and some damp glue soaked paper.
Mish-mash of colours. It's really simple, just layer on glue mix and different colours. Eldest really enjoyed making a mess with permission.
The dry product has some lovely colours and a fab texture.
The finish product, complete with glitter, sticks, sequins and furry pompom.
It was a really cheap and fun thing to do, made a personalised gift for 'Granda' (my grandad) and she loved it. I would recommend putting an old table cloth down first, simply because of glue dribbles. Use as much or as little stuff as you like.
We used -
