You might have noticed recently that we have been sharing a good deal of fashion activities on the site. We love to encourage kids to get creative with their clothes. Today we are sharing a simple, yet really fun, activity where we are using shoe coloring pages as a design activity for kids. Children can use their imaginations to design their own masterpieces.
This is a collaborative post.
Design is a fabulous art activity for children as it helps them to develop loads of different creative and logical thinking skills. It also helps to start to develop a little bit of understanding around color theory as well, which sounds a lot more complicated than it really is 🤣
This activity pack consists of four designs and a cover page. Children are encouraged to design their own shoes in a number of different styles including:
- Ballet shoes,
- Block heels, and
- High heels.
What do the shoe coloring pages pack look like?
As always, we want to make sure that you know what you are download when you click on the button below, so here is an example of some of the pages that you get within this pack.
We have shared with you the designs for the sneakers and the women’s heels that we have included within the pack. As you can see, there is plenty of space for the kids to design their own pattern on the shoes, or just to color i the shoes as they are.
We love a spot of vintage fashion, so felt the need to include a block heel shoe in with the pack, so that your kids designs can perhaps be inspired a little bit by 1960s/1970s psychedelic ideas and patterns. The older ones might be able to get really creative with this if they wanted. Platform shoes do have a tendency to be bright and bold, so its an effective way to really get your kids thinking about bright colours and designs.
The ballet shoe is a little daintier, so perhaps designs might be more pastel colored, and more toned down.
The canvas is your child’s though, so they can do what they like.
These shoe coloring pages can be used as a class activity too; so we have included names and classes on the sheets. To add texture to the shoes, you could get kids, and your class to create a collage on the shoes, perhaps around a particular, and relevant theme. Some suggestions are:
- Sneakers – cut out sports magazine pictures and use these to decorate the sneaker,
- Ballet shoes – how about exploring pictures and images of dance and the theatre and adding these to the ballet shoe as a collage,
- Block heels – as mentioned before, platforms are all about the 1960/1970s, so maybe find some images that are relevant to this time and use these in a collage. What about being inspired by the Beatles Yellow Submarine and decorating the shoe accordingly, and
- Women’s heels – explore images of women through the ages, and how their roles and portrayal has changed in the media and make a collage from these.
They may just be shoes, but decorating them using collages, and colors within different themes can really help bring the activity to life.
