We are making flip flop stamps for the beach. This is a great project for any time you will be in the sand. Here are the steps:
#1. Pick up a pair of inexpensive flip flops (Old Navy comes to mind) for each kid (and adult too if you want in on the fun).
#2. Pick up a tub of foam stickers at the craft store or your local mart. These can be shapes or letters. For me it depends on what is cheaper. Whatever you pick will be what you “stamp” in the sand.
#3. Attach the stickers to the flip flops. If you are serious about keeping the stickers on you can even hot-glue them. Remember to reverse the order of the letters if you do a word so that the stamps “say” something when you follow the footprint. This isn’t critical but a nice touch. (The shoe in the picture says the name “May” along the footprints”.)
#4. Walk around on some wet sand and leave your stamps all over the beach.
