Getting Started - Tips for Successful Outings
Looking out for fall/winter gear for kids
by keclectic

I can't believe August is over and it's September.  Contining outdoor activities in the colder monthsrequirest buying appropriate winter gear that is geared toward sports. This is the way to keep everyone comfortable and willing. Appropriate coats hats gloves shirts and pants that are made of wicking material are a must. However these items are expensive especially for fast growing kids. REI has great sales but it can be expensive. Do you have strategies for collecting winter gear for your kids? Special stores with good prices or other strategies.( thrift stores outlets)  If I'm lucky I will get hand me downs from friends, I also check out outlets, thrift stores, and  pass on my child's special outdoor gear to friends when possible.  Keeping up the outdoor activities in colder weather requires better gear, but offers many pleasures and helps families stay healthy .

Tip of the Day

Bring binoculars and a birding guidebook on your next walk and try to identify what you see. For younger kids, two toilet-paper tubes taped together (or a paper towel tube cut in half and taped) make a great set of binoculars.
