Even with the groundhog’s prediction of an early Spring, it’s obvious from looking around that Winter is still with us. Perhaps this calls for a weekend away enjoying all that snow has to offer. But if that’s not possible, a Sunday afternoon on the toboggan hill can be a great family fun moment. We’ve found some Fabulous ways to ensure everyone stays safe and warm on the hils.
|Tail Wag Helmet Cover|
We get our kids to wear helmets when they ski and ride their bikes;, racing down a toboggan hill isn’t any different. Tail Wags Helmet Covers make wearing that helmet fun. Made in Canada, Tail Wags has over 40 different designs available, appealing to both boys and girls. Just slide it over the helmet; it’s that easy. You won’t have any issues with your kids not wanting to wear their helmet with a Tail Wags cover on it. $40.00 Cdn (price varies by design).
|Hot Paws Thermal Socks|
When you’re out on the toboggan hill with the kids, you may find yourself doing more watching and pulling the sled than actually tobogganing. Hot Paws thermal socks will keep your toes toasty while standing in the snow. They come in a variety of colours with sizes for men, woman and kids. Available at department stores and pharmacies across the country. Starting at $6.00 Cdn.
|Little Hotties Hand Warmers|
Keep those little fingers warm with a pair of Little Hotties Hand Warmers. They’re small, lightweight and made of all natural ingredients.
