Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.

A sun smart sea lion may have stolen a Dunedin family's picnic spot, but stopped short of stealing their lunch.

Nikita and Kenny Hau and their two young boys were about to eat at at Aramona, near Dunedin, on Monday when something emerged from the water.

"[The sea lion] wasn't being aggressive in anyway ... it was like he was being playful," Nikita Hau says.

DOC'S ADVICE ON HOW TO ENJOY SEALS AND SEA LIONS:

- Always stay at least 20 metres away.

- Do not disturb seals or sea lions. Don't make loud noises or throw objects near them.
