Are Your Kids Prepared for Winter?

It won’t be long now until the temperatures really drop, so make sure you and your family are prepared in the way of winter clothing. Kids grow fast, so check that your child has these cold-weather essentials before the first snow day.

Warm Hat

We lose lots of heat from our heads, so cover up your little one’s head and help them retain some heat. Children often refuse to wear hats, so let your kid choose a color and style they like, as this means they will be more likely to wear it.


Nothing is more miserable than having cold fingers and hands, especially if you need your hands to help you shape an excellent snowball. Make sure your child’s gloves are double insulated, often just having the single layer means that the cold and damp can still get in. Younger children may be better suited to mittens, as fitting tiny fingers into gloves can take a while.

Thermal Leggings

Wearing an underlayer of heat-retaining thermals can make such a difference when it comes to staying warm in the cold air. Children are more susceptible to picking up coughs and colds, so protect your child as much as possible and get them some toasty underlayers they can wear under their normal clothes.
