Cut fabric into 1/2 inch strips about 6 inches long.  You will need about 20 strips.  The strips only need to be long enough to tie onto the strap of the flip flop. Some little hands might be able to have shorter strips, while others might need longer strips to make the tie.

My daughter trimmed the ends of the fabric to make them shorter.
