NEWSPAPER SHOES


Less people are buying newspapers now, reading news online......thank goodness those that do, are willing to donate them to schools.   In the past they would be used for keeping table clean.   But by the end of the summer term they are sculptures,  technological  constituents and objects of great desire.   SHOES






 










Pixie boots, clown shoes, moccasins, flip flops, moon boots.   It seemed the list was endless ( unlike the cellotape)  


Teachers dreamed of elegant cocktail parties, and long summer weddings.



Pupils worked together in small groups.  The brief was simple - one shoe, to fit a member of the team, must come on and off. 














The challenges were endless.  
 Making newspaper as strong as leather without relying on the tape, folding, joining, crumpling,  making laces, buckles, football boot studs, heels, bows and bells.   And only using scissors for cutting the tape.


We had to stop the children wearing them home!

  1. This reminds me of a field trip I took my primary students on years ago. It was to an art exhibit on historic shoes. After visiting the exhibit the docents had the kids create shoes kind of like this with paper and a variety of decorations (feathers, colored paper, fabric, etc.) It was amazing to see what the kids could create in a limited time! I love the jester's shoe in the above photo. Thanks for sharing.

  6. This is a great and creative idea. To follow your lead, during a creative arts class in college we had to create a wearable piece of clothing and show them to other teachers in our building. FUN!

  11. I don't see where the tape question was answered. How much tape could each team have? This is a great challenge for my gifted and talented students!

    1. I think it would be great for any student. I think I might try this - but would give them a yard of tape.
