5 Essentials for Bundling Your Kids in the Snow

Children love snow, and naturally, you want to keep them warm and dry while they enjoy time outdoors. As a parent, choosing the best clothing options can be tricky. Not all winter clothing is created equal, especially when it comes to playing in snow. Parents often purchase heavy wool or down jackets, gloves and hats that are easily drenched with melted snow. It’s nearly impossible to stay warm or comfortable in wet clothes, so waterproof is the name of the game when it comes to your kids enjoying themselves in snow. Here are a few essentials for keeping your kids warm, dry and healthy while they play outdoors this winter. 


With the right protection, children can stay warm and healthy when they play in snow. Winter clothes should be breathable and waterproof, but protection shouldn’t end there. Even on cloudy winter days, sunlight is reflected and enhanced by the snow, causing sunburn or eye damage.
