2. Layering up

It’s hard to know how many layers are too many, especially when it comes to your kids. Here are a few tips to ensure you’ve got them covered… literally. Use the WOW layering system.

Wet: Base layer should be a moisture wicking material such as a good synthetic thermal.
Overlay: Layer with pieces that keep the heat in and the cold out, with knits, vests and jackets.
Weather: Ensure the top layer protects against outside elements - wind, rain, snow etc.    

3. Rainy weather must-haves

If you, like us, have fun childhood memories of splashing in puddles in clunky gumboots, you’ll love these rainy weather must haves, for you and your little ones:

$15 from Kmart

4. Surviving winter sport

Saturday morning soccer, basketball, dancing… parents all over Australia are freezing their tooshies off to keep kids happy and active. Here’s how you keep everyone warm, and happy:
  • Get a good thermos! Pack your own hot drinks, saving a few $$ and the environment by ditching takeaway coffee cups. 
  • Get your base layers right. Choose a good, thermal base layer that dissipates heat, manages moisture and provides thermal insulation.
  • Get yourself a spectator tent! Made for 1 or 2 people, soccer parents worldwide are investing in small tents that block the wind and rain. 

These winter warmers aren’t the only things that can make you warm and fuzzy… it’s a great excuse to cuddle up!

Stay warm everyone!
