Spending time outside with kids in winter can be challenging. Sledding, skiing and snowball fights will drive them mad for more – but you’ll need to be well prepped for their changes in temperature and mood. Start by covering them from head-to-toe in a comfortable winter outfit.
Put a stop to the chill and possible ear aches – and add a layer of snowball protection – by dressing your little one in a warm, comfy beanie.
Cold toes are right up there with cold fingers – they’re unwelcome. Choose the right kind of fabric when buying socks for your brood, so they can focus on their next run rather than their toe temperature.
The fundamental characteristic of a midlayer is to protect your kid from wind while retaining body heat. Look for one that will both insulate your young one and offer breathability to help sweat escape.
Another vital part of your nipper’s snow attire is the outer layer. Dressing your kids in waterproof, breathable top layers is essential to keeping them dry – and protecting them when they inevitably create snow angels!
Cold feet mean unhappy kids. Boots that are a fraction too tight or too big can cause cold feet – account for some wriggle room.
Kids love to look cool so they’ll want to roll with their favourite sunnies up the slopes. But for better protection and less likelihood of losing eyewear on the mountain, get them some snow goggles with a UPF rating.
