My family live quite a ways from us. Back in January, That Guy and I took the kids for a ten day adventure to see them. While I was there I saw my mother almost fall down the stairs. My parents have highly polished hardwood floors throughout their house, the stairs included. When my mom was stepping onto the next stair her sock slipped on the surface and she was dependent on the railing to save her from a very serious fall.
It got me thinking about my kids socks too. Most children's socks do come with non skid grips on the bottom, but not any of my daughters tights. And no adult socks. Yet we, too, have hardwood floors and its can get just as slippery for adults as for children. So although I will show you this DIY on my daughters socks please use the same idea for your socks and slippers.
|Audrey's socks and some fabric paint|
- 3D/puffy fabric paint
Take your tights and put something inside to keep the paint from fusing both sides of the sock together. This could be a small piece of cardboard, a small ball or even a cup.
|I used a piece of cardboard from a tissue box destined for recycvling|
Allow time to dry and Volia! Safe fun footwear that everyone will be happy they are wearing.
|Those are supposed to be hearts, haha|
