Cold, hot, hot, cold, hot… between two seasons, the mercury plays yo-yo and with our patience. You never know how to dress children: it's a real headache! Here are our not silly tips to manage better.
The peel technique
Although effective, this solution is potentially dangerous. We dress junior as when he is going to play outside, that is to say with several layers of clothing. Thus, throughout the day, he can remove certain pieces and remain comfortable, without dying of heat or shivering, depending on the situation. The problem here is Tom Thumb syndrome: the charming child could scatter clothes here and there and, in the end, misplace them. In fact, for many parents, this is when the hunt for missing belongings begins, a not-so-funny game that usually continues year-round.
De facto, when we think of leggings, we think of little girls, but know that boys can wear them too and that it's very "trendy". In the morning, he or she puts on shorts or a dress and covers his calves with leggings. When the temperaturewarms up, just take them off and store them in the pockets of the coat or in the backpack.
The famous K-Way
We like this option for several reasons and, although the first one that comes to mind probably refers to childhood memories, it is not the one that will convince skeptics to buy it. No, it is rather the practical and utilitarian side of the K-Way that makes it a must: it can be stored in a ball at the bottom of a bag, and it is an excellent windbreaker. It is clearly a must that avoids many glitches related to bad weather.
There comes a time when it is better not to take any more risks and to put on the children, from the start, rain boots. With a small insole or a woolen sock, it's the best way to play in puddles or even face unexpected showers. That said, you have to be careful: when the ground starts to freeze, they can become slippery and cause some falls. We therefore avoid wearing them below the freezing point.
The tuque and the little gloves
It is well known, we lose heat from the extremities. So, in the morning, we think of giving a small tuque of fine wool or cotton and magic gloves to the brats. Thus, by having their head and hands warm, they will probably be much less cold. To avoid the sad disappearance of one or two gloves, consider sewing them to the coat using a small cord.
The mid-season pants
Thistype of tracksuit is good for fall, but also for spring. Go for a slightly larger size, so you can put them back on when the snow melts. Since they're often lightweight, waterproof, and windproof, they're great for playing in the leaves. Some models are very compact and can fit very well in the front pocket of a school bag. We love!
The sleeveless jacket
With or without a hood, we like the sleeveless jacket because it allows you to warm your upper body without providing too much heat. And before the snow falls, children can fully enjoy their outdoor games (skipping rope, pear ball, etc.) without being hampered in their movements by long sleeves.
