Due to excessive wear and tear, Abdiel’s (one of the Twisters) sneakers were falling apart. In an effort to save some money, we decided to fix them.
After spreading glue generously on the soles of the sneakers, I used plastic paper clips to hold the parts together while the glue dried up overnight. The experiment worked and now Abdiel has an almost new pair of sneakers. But we all know that soon we will have to buy a new pair. Abdiel is far too restless and demands a lot from his footwear. All kids behave the same way and parents are fully aware of this frequent family expenditure.
Below are some pictures of the brightly colored paper clips doing their job. Here we go.
