Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Things You Need

To make this project you need
-EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate) foam sheet about 5mm in thickness, but I have used four 1.5 mm sheets because I could not find a thick sheet
- slipper straps
- acrylic paints ( magenta, yellow, green, white and pink if your sheet is not pink).
- paint brushes
- scissors
-rubber adhesive if using multiple sheets
And masking tape

Step 2: Making the Sole

To make the sole, outline your slippers on the EVA sheets. Then cut it with a scissors or a cutter.
If using multiple sheets like me, draw on each and cut. Now paste the cutouts together using rubber adhesive.

Step 3: Painting

I had a pink EVA sheet on the top so I did not need to paint the base pink, but if using any other colour you need to first paint the base pink
I laid out tapes to paint the yellow corners and two yellow stripes
Then I painted the white stripes outlining these
Next I laid tape to paint the magenta stripes and the white stripes
I then painted the green zig-zag
I hand painted the ‘HOVER BOARD’

I couldn't make the Mattel logos because of insufficient space, but making those will make the slippers look more realistic.

Step 4: Making the Holes and Attaching the Strap

Then I made holes according to the size of the strap. I made holes using with soldering iron and then broadened them with scissors,
Next I attached the straps
And we are done making hover slippers.
