Getting children doing outdoor activities in Staffordshire may be top of your list of New Years resolutions this year.
One of the biggest barriers to getting the family out of the house can be access to appropriate outdoor wear. As we say, there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate footwear!
Make sure you have the following so you can get out of the house whatever the weather:
A warm coat
This is an obvious one, but potentially tricky one with a toddler who won’t wear one. If they are fussy forgo the duffle coat for a waterproof puffer jacket type of coat, hopefully with a warm fleecy or fluffy lining to keep them warm.
Consider one with a hood to keep their head and neck warm, or even to keep that all important hat on.
Waterproof all in one
If you want to go to the park in or after the rain, after all, who doesn’t? You should consider an waterproof all in one. This avoids the faff of having to put on a number of different items of clothing
Essential for splashing in puddles! Wellies are an important piece of footwear for your toddler to have in order to both save their normal footwear, and also so you don’t have to stop them going into the areas they want to play.
Hats and gloves
It’s chilly out so make sure your child is kitted out with gloves and hats, particularly on cold windy days.
