Bundle Up!! Dressing for winter walking and playing!

Cold start to the first week back from break.  But, this is Wisconsin, and with the proper clothing it is safe to walk and play outside.

TIPS FOR DRESSING FOR WINTER WALKING

  • Keep hands and head covered to prevent heat loss
  • On really cold days wear a scarf over your face and mouth
  • Wear warm, waterproof boots
  • Wear a warm coat that deflects the wind
  • Wear clothing or carry backpacks with reflective material – it’s important to be seen
  • If possible, change wet clothes at school – pack an extra pair of socks and mitts
