Mittens

  • 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
    cold!
  • 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.
