Let's Get Started

STEP 1

Using scissors, cut a flip-flop shape out of cardboard.

STEP 2

Paint, color and decorate the flip-flop with collage materials as desired.

STEP 3

While the flip-flop is drying, begin making the straps by threading beads onto pipe cleaners.

STEP 4

Connect one end of each pipe cleaner together by twisting to form the thong portion of the flip-flop.

STEP 5

Once the cardboard is dry, poke 3 holes in the shape of a V and put the pipe cleaners through.

STEP 6

Bend the pipe cleaner on the undecorated side of the flip-flop to secure it in place.

STEP 7

Tape flip-flops to bulletin boards, hallways or around the classroom for a festive reminder of how fun summer can be!
