Helpful Tips to Dress for Spring Season

It felt impossible, but spring is approaching! The days are long, sunny, hot, and rainy, but there is one unavoidable thing. Soak a wet child. No matter what the final destination, no matter how clean the costumes are, children can't resist the urge to dive into a puddle as they pass by.

Getting wet is part of spring and nothing can change it right away. So, as a parent, how do you fight the imminent flooders on your way? Here are some tips on how to stay dry (or stay dry) amid a wet spring.

  • Invest in a Good Pair of Rubber Boots

Your child must have the correct size rubber boots for their feet. Shoes that are too small can be very painful to a child's feet and cause blisters, especially if the feet are wet. If your boots are too large, your feet will be slippery and can sink completely into a puddle. The right size of rubber boots is perfect for dry springtime.

  • Load Extra Clothing

If your child goes to a nursery, spends the day at a friend's house, or leaves the house, be prepared and pack extra dry clothes. Children can get caught in a rain shower, splatter in a passing car, or wear wet socks from a puddle, even if they aren't playing outside.

Having dry clothes on hand will help keep your child warm and dry. At the very least, pack a lot of extra socks. Wet feet can be a pretty miserable day for everyone!

  • Do Layering

Spring is a difficult time of the year when it comes to predicting temperatures. Some days deserve a winter coat, while others offer little guarantee for a sweater. But preparing for all the possibilities when you leave home is the most difficult dressing task parents have to face. The best scenario is to cover the child with a thin layer. Dress up your kids with lightly lined splash pants, along with a sweater or light jacket. Don't forget to always wear a warm hat and send your child. It's easier to remove a layer than to add one that you don't have.

Spring is a fun time for kids and doesn't forget to always find a way to be wet & messy no matter what! As a parent, it's important to be prepared for any spring depression that your child may want to get in the way of you.
