20. Waterproofing Boots
If you find your children, or yourself, in boots that happen to not be waterproof–don’t worry there is an easy and inexpensive alternative to chemical sprays. All you need are two, two gallon plastic bags and two hairbands or rubber bands to tie the bags around your ankles. Secure the bags with the bands, and slip your feet into the boots. The boots themselves will get wet, but your feet will stay dry and warm while outside and it can help in a pinch.
