Flip Flop Fun

Do you like to kick off your shoes at the end of a long day?? Grab a pair of flip flops or other loose fitting shoes, add a hula hoop for a target and voilá — instant lawn game FUN!!

Emily loved this excuse to kick off her shoes over…..

….and over…..

…and over again! Great active (and frugal) fun!

Bullseye!! Those teal flip flops are totally mine — you didn’t think I let her have all the fun, did you??

Have fun!!


  1. Fun game!

  2. This brings back fond memories of my Mom! She would always flick off her shoes when she was swinging on a swing! There is so much joy in your daughter’s eyes!!

    • Awww… What a great memory of your mom!!! Emily had so much fun with this, and I couldn’t resist joining her either. The joy! It’s contagious!! 🙂

  3. Dear Valerie,

    If only we could translate this somehow into getting her shoes on faster!


    • *sigh* Agreed! I think I’ve grown old watching her get her shoes on…

        We had this problem with Sawyer too for a while. Now we play the whole “I can get my shoes on faster than you can!” game. Most of the time it works perfectly! The other times, I inform him that I will gladly take him to (wherever we are going) without shoes on and when someone asks him why he doesn’t have shoes on, he can explain that he wasn’t interested in doing it. 🙂 That usually gets him to put them on 🙂

  4. I love those pictures – Emily is so full of joy!

  5. Johnny would love this game =)

  6. Lol… This looks fun!

  7. toooo cute the kids do that a lot here except some usually winds up with a shoe in the head
