Knowing that kids will draw on just about anything that they can get their hands on, artful Etsy user 'TheWoodsSecretGarden' created a set of customizable boots.

TheWoodsSecretGarden Etsy shop specializes in making a wide variety of hand-painted boots, but this "Color Me" Boots design leaves more opportunity for kids to add their own special touch to the footwear design.

High-quality artist pens were used to draw a floral design on the suede uppers. TheWoodsSecretGarden describes the result as "almost like a tattoo" that can be sanded and bleached without ruin. Since the markers used for drawing are waterproof and permanent, the design on the boots is there to stay. For equally long-lasting results, similar types of pens are recommended for when kids add their own ideas to these coloring book-inspired books.
