Tips for dressing in cold-weather

Dress your child in layers of clothing that can be taken off and on off easily.

Mittens, instead of gloves, will allow fingers to retain warmth.

A warm hat will help maintain body temperature.

Prevent frostbite by keeping ears covered at all times.

Waterproof boots should be roomy enough for a child to wiggle their toes while wearing an extra pair of socks.

Wet clothing and boots should be removed immediately after playing outdoors.
