This project is really easy to do with your children. All you need is a pair of rubber flip-flops, ribbon, Fabri-tac fabric glue and any embellishments your children can imagine. Have the children design their look by having them pick out what they want to do. You can help them with the glue. After they make their first pair they may want to make more for friends.
Place a dot of the Fabri-tac glue on the inside back of one strap of the flip-flop. Press one end of your ribbon onto the dot and begin to wrap the ribbon around the strap in a coil fashion until you have wrapped the entire strap. Cut the ribbon and put another dot of glue to secure the end. You may end up with a slight gap at the front where the toe strap is but this will get covered by the embellishments. If the ribbon seems too lose as you are winding around, you can use more glue along the way. Repeat with other flip-flop. Now add fabric flowers or beaded ribbon where desired, securing with the same Fabri-tac glue. More detailed instructions can be seen on the Martha Stewart site here. Guys might light dark flip-flops with camouflage ribbon like this shown from PaperMart.com
