These colorful DIY rain boots are the perfect arts and crafts project for any parent running out of room on their fridge. As an important early cultivator of self-expression and imagination, creative activities help develop confidence and comprehension in children that can be neglected in other activities. Using the boots as the canvas, these make a great rainy day activity that you will be able to put to use after.

Available on the Metropolitan Museum of Art online store, this DIY rain boots kit is a great activity that will inspire a playful afternoon of fashion design or rainstorm preparation -- whichever the lucky painter cares to imagine.

The DIY rain boots kit comes with six paint pens and one pair of rubber boots, which are available in medium and large.
