Crafts for Kids: Trick Some Kicks

Kids can use fabric markers to create their own fashion statements. Since fabric markers work fabulously on canvas surfaces, they’re perfect for "tricking some kicks!" Inspire your tween or teen to create, color and design some spring "kicks" using this craft idea.

Bling (buttons, sequins, gems, etc.)
White canvas shoes
Tulip Fabric Markers (nontoxic)
Aleene’s Quick Dry Fabric Fusion (to adhere buttons)
Ribbon for the laces


– Create and color designs on a pair of canvas shoes using fabric markers.

– Glue on bling such as buttons, sequins and/or gems.
– Trade out the laces for ribbons of your choice (matching or not).
