KP Tip: Layering your Toddler for Cold Weather Activities

If you are part of our Facebook community, then you know that a few weeks ago, we started our all new Kid Project Tip Series! We will be publishing new tip videos every week on our Facebook and YouTube channels!

Since it is super easy to miss things via social media, I will be summarizing and sharing the videos each week in a blog post as well. Make sure to subscribe on the right side bar if you want them delivered to your inbox each week! Don’t miss last week’s video: Motivating Your Kids in the Outdoors

Getting your toddler ready for adventure can be hard. And even harder when you are layering up for skiing or sledding!

Today we address a question from one of our Kid Project readers:

 Been slowly putting my 2-year-old on skis this year and he loves the idea but hates the getting dressed part. I used to teach skiing to 3-5 year olds but they had mostly gotten past this phase. Any tips for making getting dressed in layers for skiing fun?

We have 3 tips we share in the video:

  1. Get yourself (and everyone else) dressed and ready BEFORE taking on the toddler.
  2. Pick your battles wisely.
  3. Choose less layers. Instead of 5 warm tops, aim for on long sleeve shirt and a warm down jacket.

What are your tips for layering up those toddlers?
