Today I asked Big E, “What’s your favorite season?” He said: “Winter because you can make snowballs and snowmen and throw the snowballs at the snowmen.” I love his reason, even though it’s not one I had considered.

Getting outdoors when it’s cold outside can be tough, but having good gear makes it easier. As a child I remember sledding with plastic bags over tennis shoes because there weren’t enough boots for my eight siblings and me. It wasn’t fun.

This year I’m happy to connect with Their collection of brand name kid gear is awesome – Burton, Obermeyer, Patagonia and The North Face. Plus their holiday gift guide has 100 great ideas for Winter Kid gifts and right now they’re having a clearance sale with items up to 70% off!

Just sign on to Twitter from 2:30 – 3:00pm MST and follow the outdoor family hashtag #OutFam for a chance to win. I’ll be hosting at @MountainMomTots and we’ll be talking about Family Winter Adventures.

Here’s a quick preview –  My top tips for keeping Winter Kids warm.
1. Insist on a bathroom break before putting on snow pants.
2. Bib overalls keep snow out of waistbands.
3. Every coat should have its own pair of mittens in the pockets.
4. One pair of warm socks should be enough. If it’s not, get better socks and snow boots.
5. Teach tots early to zip and fasten as much as they can on their own. sent me one of their adorable Burton lunch boxes and little g immediately put it to use as a purse for her My Little Ponies. Even at three she could see how stylish it is. But I’m looking forward to using it as intended. With Big E’s allergies we bring our own food everywhere and a quality insulated lunch box is important. Plus I like the velcro straps on the back and zippered front pocket.

  1. Amanda over at bathroom breaks with kids is my speciality being gastrointestinally challenged! There is a company on Amazon that has toilet seat covers that are like a bib for a toilet!
    I don't know about anyone else but when my son was younger and we were in a gas station the fact that he would sit and dangle his legs down the front of the toilet we had to emergency stop at would make me cringe.

    OR if you are needing to use the restroom and keeping your toddler safe by locking them in the restroom with you whilst you go is your only option, a shield between those germs and the world is a good thing. (It's hard when the child is walking between you and the toilet like he is squezzing through racks at Wal-Mart or roaming the area as casually as looking at books in the local library and you are trying to take care of your own business.)

    Another great tip I learned from a neighbor was a laminated card on each kids bag that listed all the gear they would need for that sport. A lot of out door families have multiple sports and it is the worst to get to a destination and realize ya left your gloves in a different bag and have to go to the exspensive ski shop and buy a new pair!
