Make Your Own Tap Shoes

What You Need:

  • 2 large metal bottle caps (as found on gallon juice bottles)
  • Nail
  • Hammer
  • 2 10" lengths of string

What You Do:

  1. Use the hammer and nail to make two holes spaced about an inch apart in the top of each bottle cap. Make sure your child stays a safe distance away while you do this step.
  2. Thread one piece of string through the holes in each of the bottle caps. Knot the ends of the string to prevent the string from falling out.
  3. Place one bottle cap underneath the toe of each of your child's shoes, with the inside of the bottle cap facing the sole of the shoe.
  4. Wrap the strings around the shoes and tie tightly. Lace the string once through the shoe laces for extra support.
  5. Once they're tied on, let your child dance away with her new "tap" shoes!
