Tape the paper to the floor.
Pour paint onto plates.
Spread the cloth or towel on the floor nearby.
Help or Invite your child to put on their boots (and remove their pants if you are concerned about paint splashing).
This is just like feet painting (which is fabulous slippery fun if you haven't yet tried it!) but with boots.
Invite your child to step in their color(s) of choice and then stomp on the paper.
Have your child sit on the cloth or towel and remove their boots when they are done. If needed, do a little extra wiping with a wet wash cloth on hands or legs. Once your child is cleaned up, send them to another space and quickly hang up the wet painted paper. I usually just pull the tape off the floor with the paper and stick it to the wall for a quick clean up solution. Wipe any paint on the floor with your wet washcloths.
Then pick up your boots wrapped in the towel and carry them to the tub or laundry room. I rinsed the bottoms a little and then threw them by themselves in the washing machine. They came out as good as new. There is a chance the paint might not come out so if this is a concern, possibly wait until the end of the season and do the activity before you pack them up. However, in our case this wasn't an issue.
