Recycled Craft: Cereal Box Sandals

Cereal Box Sandals

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Froot Loops flip-flops, Cheerios slippers, Kix sandals. Really now, who can resist this footwear of champions? Have your child cut or rip open an empty cereal box, stand on it, and draw around each shoe.


  • Empty cereal box
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Duct (or packing) tape


Cut out the shoe shapes plus as many straps as your child wants. Tape the straps in place using masking, duct, or packing tape. For the best fit, wrap and tape the straps and soles together around the child's bare feet. Kids can leave the sandals au naturel or decorate them with whatever their feet desire. Note: these sandals are best as loungewear as they may be slippery on certain surfaces.
