Learn to Make Your Own Shoes for Summer

If you are a freak over shoes or simply looking to do something a little different on your feet, The Williamson Museum may be right up your alley. Danelle Houck, the educational program coordinator at the Williamson Museum, joined us to talk about making sand shoes. This is a fun activity for all ages and all you need to make your shoes is a piece of cardboard or foam, a pen, a hole punch, and a couple feet of material. The first step is to take a piece of foam or card board and trace your foot around, leaving about an inch or so extra to make sure your foot is comfortable. Next you punch three holes in your cut out for the material to fit through. You take a piece of 6 inch, and a piece of foot long fabric and place through the holes, tie them together, and there you have it! Your sand shoes are complete. The Williamson Museum is located on South Austin Avenue in Georgetown and they host a hands on educational activity every second Saturday of the month. Give them a call at 512-943-1670 for more information or go to williamsonmuseum.org.
