Have you tried going to the malls and you just can't find that fashionable shoes you want? Why don't you design your own? Its fun and its cheap!

I found this lesson on and thought that it would be a great lesson to develop the drawing skills and creative thinking of my first graders.

1) pencil
2) paper
3) color pens/ colored markers
4) crayons

1) Draw a shoe outline in a sheet of paper.(I gave my students a pattern.) You can draw anything: rubber shoes, sandals, boots, high heels, school shoes, etc.
2) Decorate your shoe drawing.
3) Trace your design with colored markers.
4) Color your work!
