ACTIVE SCHOOL TRAVEL
Some tips for how to get outside and still have fun in the cold, including while you’re walking or wheeling to school or the bus stop.
- Being dressed for the weather is the first step to enjoying the outdoors. Here are a few suggestions on how to stay warm:
- Wear a base layer
- Wear an insulating layer (wool socks, shirt and pants but not jeans or cotton)
- Wear an outer shell (windproof jacket with a hood and snow pants with elastic or velcro fastening at the cuff)
- Wear insulated waterproof snow boots
- Have a hat that covers the ears (and a spare!)
- Add a neck warmer
- Finish with waterproof mittens
- Keep moving!
- Eat high-fat snacks to keep your body going.
- Drink water! Even though it’s cold, the air is dry and your body can become dehydrated.
