I always love crafting with my children. I also feel it’s very important to teach children that we must always help others – whether it be giving a small gift to cheer a friend who is having a bad day, cooking a meal for new parents, or donating to a charity. So, when Craft Hope posted their recent project, I was thrilled that it was a project all three of my children to take part in.
For Project 22, Craft Hope is collecting flip flops for children in Nicaragua.
I purchased four pairs of flips flips, and then dug through our craft cupboard and my sewing supplies. I also purchased Crafter’s Glue “The Ultimate”. This is a non-toxic, water based glue with a super strong hold. I knew getting things to stick to the flip flops might be tricky, and this stuff seems to have worked well for us. I also wasn’t worried about my 3-year-old using it, and it goes on as simply as white glue.
So, we covered the table and set to work.
I think they turned out super cute, don’t you?
