Do they still let kids have snowball fights during recess? I sure hope so. If they do, then it is of the utmost importance that you equip your child with the gear that they will need to defend themselves on the playground.
Mittens and gloves are essential for forming great snowballs as well as constructing snow barriers or snowmen to act as guards. Boys and girls have tiny fingers which can succumb easily to frostbite so using the appropriate hand covering not only increases the speed at which you can manufacture essential snow warfare supplies, it also protects from digital damage.
The best gloves for kids are warm, waterproof, and visually appealing. Did I say visually appealing? I meant awesome looking. Basically, really cool gloves can supercede the snow battling by inspiring awe in your opponents.
