Fun and Fancy Footwear
Today is the last day of school for 4 of my kids. Tomorrow the days of boredom for children and insanity for mothers begins. The long days of rummaging through cupboards for something to eat, running in and out of the door, sibling fighting, sticky hands, cuts, bruises, bug bites, beach towels scattered everywhere, searching for goggles, pleading for TV and video games, hungry mouths....all day, and the constant "I'm bored! There is NOTHING to do in this house," coupled with, "There is nothing GOOD to eat"! Oh, let summer begin!
Here is one project my kids did to keep themselves busy for at least a couple of hours last summer. We all piled in the car and went to Walmart. Each child bought a pair of 3 dollar tennis shoes and one big package of sharpe markers. Colorful, unique footwear now adorn their busy feet.
