Kids Rain Pants
When Silas was first starting outdoor school there was a substantial list of gear that was required, including waterproof overalls. We didn't remember having anything like this as a kid so it felt a little foreign and initially was a little difficult to try to source.
But now that we know how great these overalls are (which seem to be a staple for kids in other parts of the world) we try to always have a pair ready in the car. Whether they're for a layer of windproofing in chilly weather, an extra layer of protection from ticks or pricker bushes, or just an excellent barrier for mud and dirt so your kid can feel free to dig around without a big cleanup production afterward, they are a welcome addition to our arsenal of weather gear for upstate living.
And once we found one of our favorite retailers Babyshop, we finally had an easy source for good-looking versions of this kind of gear which is often made from recycled materials and use fewer nasty chemicals. Definitely recommend grabbing a pair, or 5.
