DIY Shoes and Slime

DIY Spotlight: Galaxy Shoes, Fluffy Slime - Oh My!


As anyone with a tween or teen knows, DIY projects and videos are all the rage and for parents, this can be a good thing. We all try to limit screen time on those days where you don’t have a lot planned or perhaps you are working from home and have back-to-back meetings. But sometimes you need to plan ahead with some projects to keep those kids busy on unexpected snow days, Spring break or just days when you don’t have a plan. We will highlight some of our favorite DIY projects and videos from time to time to help you discover ways to inspire and create with your kids. 


Here are some DIY videos and projects that we think you and your kids will appreciate. 


DIY Galaxy Shoes - these shoes are so cute and will keep the kids busy for a few hours. For this project, you will need:

  • Sharpies
  • White Shoes
