During “The Elves and the Shoemaker” we create our own Shoe Art!
Begin by gathering shoes. Each child will need one shoe.
Next, prepare the shoe by spray painting it. I have used gold, silver, red, and even black!
To decorate, gather a variety of baubles, beads, trim and feathers.
I like using the Golden Gel Medium as it will hold the baubles and not fall off. I put a scoop of the medium in little cups with a stick.
Let the children create their own shoe masterpieces!
I display the shoes in a little “Shoe Museum” in the hallway.
