Sharpie Shoes

As my son and I did this activity, he said "this is my favorite activity!" I had to laugh. He loved coloring shoes with Sharpie Markers and he adored the gradient process. We had a blast making mommy and son shoes. He even wanted to help color mine. This activity took no energy we just sat still and colored. It was awesome. 

WHAT YOU NEED: 
White Canvas Shoes
Colored Sharpies 
Rubbing Alcohol 

DIRECTIONS:
1 Color the canvas of the shoes with as many colors are you like. We ended up liking the areas I created swirls and other shapes as they bled together really pretty. You could make any design, flowers, stripes, swirls, whatever your want. Just be sure to make the ink thick. 
2
After the entire shoe is covered in color, apply rubbing alcohol to spread the color. We used a medicine dropper (if you do be sure to throw it away after the project). Drip the rubbing alcohol all over the shoes saturating the canvas. 
3
Let the shoes dry over night. If you want you can add more rubbing alcohol, it may create water droplet like effect if you don't soak the entire shoe. 
4
When you're happy and they are dry, pop them on your feet and walk around in style.
