Learn to Dress for Cold Weather Play

Layer clothing to keep warm air next to your skin.

Loose fitting clothes are best for moving around outside.

Winter boots should be large enough to wear a couple pair of socks.

Wool is a wonderful fabric for staying warm and dry.

Clothing made of cotton fabric is not good to wear when it is cold.

Keep your hands warm. Mittens protect hands better than gloves.

Cover you head with a hat and hood. Most body heat is lost through the head.

Try to keep your clothing dry. Wet clothes do not retain heat.

An outer jacket or coat should be made of a wind resistant material.

Wear a scarf to protect you neck.
