(G,3) For the love of Flip-Flops

This Flip-Flop project was inspired by Kids Artists.

The students outlined the Flip-Flops on a white sheet of construction paper and used color pencils to create the design.
We created the straps by folding pages from magazine.
We attached the paper Flip-Flops on a canvas board and used acrylics for the background.


  1. All your projects have such rich and layered colors and textures. I like the folded magazine straps too. Great project for summer!

  2. Thank you Mary,

    Sometimes the layering effect is a happy accident.
    The students originally wanted to use oil pastels.

    They were not happy with the results because as we know oil pastels can be temperamental and so they decided to use acrylics.

  3. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your comments! I just love this flip flop project-going to have to try a painting/mixed media like this! So glad I found your site!

  4. Great. I might try this very creative idea with the girls of my 7th grade class. I'll have to find out what the boys are going to do then.
