A colorful Shoe

What happens to all those shoes that don't fit anymore or one pair gets lost?? Why you turn them into art of course. This is a great activity to teach children about recycling and the loss of a shoe or some other toy that needs parts.

Shoe, straw/hay, tissue paper, & paint

1)Find an old shoe and start painting it different colors or paint a pattern onto it.
2) Stuff the shoe full of some straw/hay
3) paint tissue paper or use colored paper
4) Pour glue into the bottom of the shoe and put in the straw and tissue paper.
5) Let Dry!

Your shoe can be used as a paper weight or a decoration. Just keep it away from the cats and dogs!!
