Winter Weather Jan - Feb
First Layer: Cover top and bottom with a non-cotton base layer. We recommend merino wool or soft polyester fabric. Both will keep kids warm, and wick away moisture from the skin.
Second Layer : Cover top & bottom with a fleece or wool layer.
Final Layer : Finish the final layer of protection with durable waterproof pants and jacket.
Feet : Protect with wool socks AND insulated rain/snow boots.
Head and hands : Wool hats give greatest warmth to head. Mittens keep hands warmer than gloves.
In addition to proper gear:
bring full reusable water bottle
consider an extra set of clothes if your child loves messy mud and water play
an extra set of gloves and socks can save the day : )
a plastic bag for wet/dirty clothes
ensure child has been fed to support regulation
Thrift-shops, Facebook Market place, and Boise Gear Collective are great places to find affordable, secondhand gear.
