How To Dress For Playing In The Snow | Cold Weather Dressing Tips*


Well, it looks like Winter is here to stay! and winter kids clothing is definitely a must. Unlike us adults, kids are more sensitive to change in temperature. The heat retention system of kids is not fully developed. Which makes it more difficult for them to adjust to the low temperature.

The struggle is real! Keeping kids warm while playing outside in the cold is a battle. Here's some quick tips to save your sanity and allow you all to play outside longer!

Layer up, base layer should ideally be wool, NOT cotton. Primark do really good thermal vests which wash well. After the base thin material long sleeves tops are good for laying up without being heavy. 

But, not too many layers, layering your kid with too much outerwear can actually make them colder. That’s because excess layers can cause your child to sweat, which makes their clothes wet, allowing the cold and wind to bring their temperature down

Cover the gaps, which are the wrists, ankles, neck and waist. Also long sleeve gloves are perfect as the fit over and under a coat. For the ankles long socks or tights are great for under trousers. 

Pick the correct footwear, wellies or snowboots with a deep, strong, rubber tread, are good for all types of snow, ice and slush.

And don't forget hats, gloves and scarfs, child’s head, face, ears, hands, and feet are most prone to cold exposure and frostbite.
