Newspaper Shoes

When I was 8 my big sister taught us how to make newspaper shoes. It very easy and fun for you to do with your kids. This is also a good way to put those extra newspapers to good use.

How to roll your Newspapers

Top and side view

You will need:
Any old newspapers( comics make them more colorful)

  1. Gather up all your old newspapers.
  2. Start by rolling up your first sheet of newspaper. (Look at picture above) When it's all rolled up, tape it together to form a long strip of newspaper.
  3. Make about 10 more newspaper rolls or more if you have a larger foot.
  4. Tape all the newspaper rolls together at the ends so you have a very long strip.
  5. Start rolling the long roll in a spiral shape until you are done. Tape it together.
  6. Make 1 more newspaper roll and tape it a little more than half way up your shoe. That's the top of your shoe.
  7. Decorate your shoe if you would like to, but you don't have to.
  8. Repeat all the above steps and make an identical shoe. Put on your shoes and be stylish!

*Shoes are a bit slippery if you have wood floors*
