Using inexpensive craft foam, add a frog or lizard to boring sandals or flip-flops for kid-approved summer shoes. Kids can help create these cute flops.
Transfer patterns to Fun Foam and cut 2 heads, 2 faces, 4 eyelids, and 4 feet from green; 2 tongues from yellow; and 2 bugs from black. Transfer wing pattern to plastic and cut 4. Referring to photo as guide, glue 2 wiggle eyes and 2 eyelids in place on each face. Let dry. With bottom of face aligned with placement line, glue 1 face on each head, sandwiching straight end of 1 tongue in between. Glue 1 bug and 2 wings on each tongue. Let dry.
Transfer patterns to Fun Foam and cut 2 lizards from purple, 5 diamonds from yellow, and 2 diamonds from pink.
From pink Fun Foam scraps, punch 2 (1/4”) circles, 4 (3/16”) circles and 4 (1/8”) circles. From yellow Fun Foam scraps, punch 2 (3/16”) circles. Measure ankle strap of sandal. Using pattern and ¼” hole punch, cut 1 pink diamond and punch 1 yellow circle per inch to decorate ankle strap of each sandal.
Referring to photo, glue 5 yellow diamonds in place on each lizard, trimming 2 diamonds to fit tail. Let dry. Beginning with diamond nearest lizard’s head, glue pink circles on yellow diamonds in the following order: 3/16”, ¼”, 3/16”, 1/8” and 1/8”. Glue 1 (3/16”) yellow circle on top of each of 2 pink diamonds. Let dry. Glue 1 lizard and 1 pink diamond with yellow circle on instep of each sandal. Let dry. Glue remaining pink diamonds and yellow circles alternately around ankle strap of each sandal. Let dry.
