How to Make your Kids Wear Mittens


Visitors: 350

Cold winter months are just around the corner and it calls for some winter wear makeover especially for your children who need thick insulation to keep them warm. Children are vulnerable to cold weather easily so they must be dressed in proper winter gear. Not only should be kids wear jackets and suits but also mittens and gloves to keep their hands safe and warm.

The hands and toes should not be taken for granted because the worst thing could happen is to get frostbite or snow-related injuries. Prolong exposure of body parts to the cold can decrease the blood flow and make it numb. The best solution for children not to go through this is to wear protective clothing. The sight of the snow in the yard makes any child excited. As a parent, before you allow your child run free on the snow, remember to make them wear mittens and gloves. The hands are very sensitive body parts and covered with thin layers of skin. These mittens are not simply accessories but are essential gears to protect them when they handle snow. Remind your children not to remove the gloves and avoid touching the snow with bare hands. Explain to them the consequences of exposing their bare skin to the cold surface.

Then, how will you make your children like mittens? The answer is easy. Choose mittens that are thick, comfortable and durable. Your children should feel as if their hands are not restricted to move. You can also buy waterproof mittens to better protect your child from melted snow. Mittens made from wool and cotton can absorb moisture and liquid quickly. The strategy is to instruct your kids to wear waterproof mittens when playing outside and to wear regular mittens when staying indoors. The mittens come in different fastening systems. Some mittens can be closed by sticking together the Velcro straps while some others come with zippers. This type of mittens is recommended for outdoor use because you will not have to worry about losing the glove. Once children are engaged to a game, they might not notice the mitten falling off their hands. For indoor use, you can opt for type of mittens that slips right on the hand since you will have no problem looking for it inside the house when it falls off.

You and your children can make shopping for mittens and gloves a bonding activity. Doing such thing will lessen the burden for you in choosing what kind of mitten suits your children. Allow your kids to choose the mittens they favor and just give your opinions if it is the right one. However, if you do not want to drive to the mall, invite your children in front of the computer and do some online shopping. Show them the pictures and designs available online and let them pick the mittens they want. There are websites online which features virtual dolls which can be dressed up. Let your kids decide on the clothes they want to wear during the cold season.
