If there’s one thing children love, it’s playing in water. Furthermore, the British weather is only reliable in the sense that you can rely on it not to stay the same for long – many’s the time we take our family for a day out, bathed in sunshine, only to arrive at our destination with the heavens having opened.
The important thing is to be prepared. Don’t let the weather deter you from doing things, because there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes.
Waterproofs are also good on sunny days when your child might be playing with water. Young children are less tolerant of walking around wet and you don’t want them to fall ill either, so it pays to keep them dry. Fortunately, there are all sorts of waterproof clothes available for little ones.
Breathable, waterproof dungarees are a good place to start. They are washable and feature reflective strips which is a sensible addition for when it gets a bit darker, allowing your child to be more easily seen. A poncho is also vital. Small and lightweight, a poncho also offers unparalleled protection from rain as there are no zips or buttons where water can get in. Ponchos also come in handy in other situations too, keeping clothes clean when there’s the potential for messiness.
