Cowboy Boots Inspire Your Kids Creativity Submitted by Jim Roche NJ

When it comes to boys, any parent knows that the secret for a fun time includes selecting just the right scenarios. As the parent of two boys, I can vouch for the fact that boys tend to be innately energetic, inquisitive, and imaginative. Any setting that can inspire one or more of these qualities in your little one is a good choice.

In our home the boys have a tendency to become interested in a particular theme for a while, and imaginative play is the natural result. Currently, they are passionate about cowboys.

They adore their cowboy boots that they pull on first thing in the morning, they enjoy riding their wheeled horses around as well as the various other push-toys and battery-operated figures are also favorites. Our youngest child is happy to practice his Colors while assembling his Woody from Toy Story Puzzle across the living room floor.

Seeing that cowboy scene was here to stay for a while, we invested in kids cowboy boots and hats, and other "extras" for Christmas. Two months later, the children are still as enamored as they were on Christmas morning. The boys, create story lines and play scenes from their favorite cartoon characters stories. But even the youngest one, loves to push his toy horse along the house, yelling "Woo woo!"

Cowboy Boots and hats have opened the door to their imaginations, and jockeying for favored horses and clothing has cultivated negotiating and sharing skills. In our home, we recommend cowboy gear as some of the best toys for boys.

Of course, cars and trucks also go well with boys. For hours of creative play, select accompanying items such as a garage, a race track, or a roll-up area rug with roads printed on it.

The average boy will enjoy just about any kind of vehicle, whether something as simple as a little hand-held push car, or something more elaborate such as a remote-control or ride-on car. Other great choices include fire engines, airplanes, boats, buses, and just about anything else with wheels.

More absolute "must-have" toys for boys include balls of any and every variety, all types of blocks, and action figures. While children have differing interests and temperaments, these choices are proven favorites. But whatever your child's interests, there are sure to be many great toy choices to encourage and excite him to play hard and reach his full potential.

So Your Kid Wants to be a Cowboy? Find the Right Kids Cowboy Boots Here Submitted by Jim Roche NJ

What, you are baffled because your kid saw some cowboys on T.V. riding their horses and throwing their lassos and turned round to you and said, "Mommy, I want those kinds of cowboy boots!" Well, the question you should be asking yourself is not how your kid ever grew so quickly be interested in those awesome styles that mainly young adults go for, but how you get to satisfy your child's innocent wish.

The reason why more and more kids nowadays are interested in such cowboy boot styles is definitely not a mystery. Everyone knows that kids love action figures and cartoon pictures. They often see some of their own toys dressed in cowboy boots and other apparel, like Andy in the movies of Toy Story 1 and Toy Story 2. Yosemite Sam is a popular cartoon figure that all kids enjoy because of his cool ways of walking in his stylish cowboy boots.

There really is nothing wrong with giving your kids the opportunity to fulfill their wishes and wear something out of ordinary. You can let them wear those little cowboy boots and make them click their heels on the floor as they walk. ( Which can sometime be very annoying) But before you buy them those cowboy boots, there are a few things that you should be on the lookout for.

1) The first thing to look at in kids cowboy boots is how durable they might be. How do you know that the cowboy boots that you buy will be durable? A good indication is whether they have reinforced soles on them or not. If they do, it means that they will last for a long time, and this is extremely important because that would guarantee that your kid's feet will be well protected all the time!

2) You should also remember that your kid is still in the growing phase, and therefore his feet will soon outgrow the cowboy boots he wears now. While making the choice about your kids cowboy boots, your kid will be better served if you went for cowboy boots that are half a size larger so that your kid can wear them for a couple years.

3)o If you live in an area that receives a lot of rain, it is better not to let the rain ever dampen your your kids spirit let alone his cowboy boots. Cowboy boots made of suede leather are good to look at, but this material does not hold up in water. You might want to go for some made for vinyl, rubber or other waterproof materials.

4) Cowboy Boots will protect your kid's feet from the elements that otherwise might seep in through sandals or thin soled slippers.

5) Cowboy Boots can also help prevent injury when your kids step into thick bushes or puddles.

Not only are the kids cowboy boots fun to wear, but they are also perfect for allowing your child to imagine that he really is a cowboy riding the Western range alone with his horse towards the sunset. He can even dress up like a real cowboy with those cool cowboy boots and attend a costume party!

Kid Cowboy Boot Humor | Submitted by Jim Roche NJ

Did you hear about the Oklahoma teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?

He asked for help and she could see why?

Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boys cowboy boots still didn't want to go on. By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said, 'Teacher, they're on the wrong feet.' She looked, and sure enough, They were.

It wasn't any easier pulling the kids cowboy boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the cowboy boots back on, this time on the correct feet.

He then announced, 'These aren't my cowboy boots.

She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream, 'Why didn't you say so?', like she wanted to.

Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting cowboy boots off his little feet. No sooner had they gotten the kids cowboy boots off when he said, they're my kid brother's cowboy boots. My Mom made me wear em.

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the cowboy boots on his feet again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked, 'Now, where are your mittens?

He said, 'I stuffed 'em in the toes of my cowboy boots.

My Kids Cowboy Boots | Stretching to Fit | Jim Roche NJ Submitted by Jim Roche NJ

The purpose of stretching kids cowboy boots or any pair of boots for that matter is to improve on the fit of the boot in order to be more comfortable. There is nothing more comfortable than an old pair of cowboy boots, once broken in, they are as comfortable as a second skin, like they were custom-made for your feet. The reward, makes it all worth the effort.

The steps below are how I stretch my kids cowboy boots, they are relatively easy and require minimal effort and you can do these yourself at home on the cheap.

My boys cowboy boots are considered essential accessories around here and we do our best to properly care for them as well as preserve their quality. Buying a new pair of boots and stretching them to fit from the get go is my job, all that requires to make my boys cowboy boots fit them is just a litlle time and it's cheaper than taking them to a shoe shop to get them stretched.

Before stretching my kids cowboy boots, I make sure to clean the inside and outside with a clean damp cloth. This will free the pair of boots from the lines and scuff marks, I find that using warm water for cleaning is best.

I put a small amount of saddle soap on my cloth, I start on the inside of my boys boots paying special attention to the toe area and other areas they tell me are tight. I apply more saddle soap to the outside of the boot, I repeat this process till my kids cowboy boots take on a warm sheen and feel supple, almost damp to the touch.

When my kids cowboy boots have soaked up the the saddle soap, I get them to put on an old pair of socks and wear the boots for about an hour, this makes the leather warm. After removing the boots, I then stuff them with damp newspaper, being sure to fill the whole area as tightly as I can, making sure that the shape of the boot is still maintained. I leave the boots alone for a day then I'll repeat the process a couple more times if needed depending on how much they need to be stretched and there you have it. My kids cowboy boots fit them like a glove.

There are a lot of suggestions on the Internet for how to stretch leather cowboy boots. While most of them will work, many of them will damage the leather. I've know some people suggest that standing on water while wearing boots is a good idea. In fact this is not a good idea because water ruins the quality of the leather. Foot molds are available in shoe stores which may be used from time to time. Oil is also a good component for making leather stretch. All you have to do is rub a small amount into your kids cowboy boots.
