Well, this cheap hack might help!

Aussie mum Ali Poole took to the Facebook group Kmart Mums Australia to share her $3.50 school holiday activity that has all the parent obsessed with it!

Ali wrote, Some school holiday fun: white canvas shoes on sale for $3.50, packet of sharpies and some rubbing alcohol. My daughter loves her new tie dye shoes.

“ETA: shoes were plain white canvas ones from Kmart, pack of sharpie textas in the stationary section and rubbing alcohol is in a green bottle the brand is Isocol with the bandaids at woolies.

“To make: colour in shoes in any design then drip the alcohol over the top to make the colours bleed. Leave to dry for 24 hours then spray with waterproof shoe spray available at shoe shops or maybe Woolies and Coles.”
