Dress for success
Now that they’ve heard the call of the wild let’s get them outfitted for outdoor adventures! It may seem silly but consider this: grown-ups have work clothes, exercise clothes, fancy clothes, and, of course, hiking clothes – why shouldn’t kiddos? Plus, having their own special outfit and gear will get them excited about going outside.
You can start small with a tiny pair of hiking shoes and a lightweight backpack. The shoes will have little ones feeling like they can conquer every rock and root, and the pack will be precious cargo once you fill it with snacks and a few small toys! For smaller children, consider a waist pouch. The important thing is to make kiddos feel responsible. With their own pack they can carry a favorite snack or a toy to make breaktime a fun time! A small, simple toy is best. Our miniature Wooden Vehicles or Mini Monster Trucks are easy to hold on to and a great fit for any trail!
