SKID PROOF YOUR CHILD'S SOCKS

This post is regards to my other post "elephant slippers". I got a lot of mother advising me to let Kaitlyn wear a skip proof socks and one mother even suggested that i make my own by putting puff paint on the bottom of my daughters socks,thanks Kate, you gave me the right push. Well i did thought about that since I'm usually a resourceful person and when your a mother you have to be and yes, we did get her some skid proof socks but they are to big,lol. She is in shorter and petite side of the height meter. Since she already had some regular sock i decided to make my own. Lets get back to making this work.

Things that you will need
  • pair of socks
  • tulip xtreme paint
  • cut out small cardboard or piece of hard paper
HERE'S HOW I DID IT
  • Make sure the socks are clean, and on the right side.
  • puff paint,tulip xtreme paint
  • Cut a small rectangular shape of cardboard or hard paper just enough to fit in the socks.
  • Place cut rectangular shape in socks and turn it bottom socks up
  • Start putting on the xtreme paint. You can design it anyway you want. I rather prefer the small dots.
  • Let it dry for at least 6 hrs.
  • Its ready to be used
  • dont wash for at least 48 hrs so the paint will get a chance to stick, wash inside out.
  • Im not expert at these but it did work for Kayla and Kaitlyn so thats good enough for me.




MAY NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE BUT IM OPEN TO MORE SUGGESTIONS AND TIPS SO LEAVE ME A COMMENT.

This is a cute idea that could also work for elderly people as well.
