What you need:
Exacto Knife (or scissors)
Trace a large foot shapes onto cardboard and use exacto knife to cut them out.
Cut out some strips that are 3" by 15"
Paint your cardboard pieces anyway you want, we used some spray glitter too!
Have your child stand on the foot and draw a 3" line on each side of their foot.
Using exacto knife cut on these lines.
Push your cardboard strip into the slits. The straps should cross over eachother on the bottom of the foot. Check to see if they fit and trim extra off.
Use tape on the bottom to secure strap ends together and to the cardboard foot.
There you have it!
This idea I found at WhiMSyLove
Want a book to go along with your project? How about this one. We read this the night before I found this cute project.
The kids worked on their tracing skills, I only cut out one foot then had them use it as a pattern to trace the other.
Older Kids Activity: After they make their BIG feet, have them run a relay race down around an object and back.
