- Minimum of 2 pairs but 3+ is better (Full day children will need 3 pairs!)
Long elasticized cuffs that pull on over the snowsuit
- The ones with the long elasticized cuffs that pull on over the snowsuit are ideal. Short mittens
leave a gap between sleeve and mitten which gets full of snow which is uncomfortable and
- Gloves are not acceptable.
- As we strongly encourage independence, children should be taught to put their mittens on last. Do not put them under their snowsuits! We are often taking our mitts off and on for a variety of reasons and this makes it very challenging. As well, this means
they are unable to do anything for themselves.
