It’s almost that time of the year when the kids are begging to go outside to play in the snow! As much as we love giving little ones the opportunity to enjoy a good ol’ snow day, we can only truly enjoy it if they’re prepared for freezing temperatures. Along with many other snow day essentials, the need kids’ snow pants.
Snow pants are not your regular winter pants (AKA sweatpants). These pants are lined with special material to keep your kids warm and cozy. As someone who gets cold easily, I know firsthand not wearing the correct winter outerwear can lead to constricted blood flow or frostbite!
Here are the best pants for sledding, snowboarding, snowball fights, and even school.
Best Kids’ Pants for Snow Days
Best Unisex Pant
Columbia’s pants come in black and navy blue. These unisex pants have an elastic waistband and are adjustable for the best fit!
Parents, you’ll be able to machine wash these snow pants after a snow day. These are perfect for kids who hate bib snow pants and snowsuits. Once little kids figure out how much warmer these are than leggings and sweatpants, they’re going to wonder how they have made it through winter without them.
Best for Camo Lovers
These snow bibs are perfect for little boys who love camo! The one-piece might not be a favorite if kids are only used to snow pants, however, the style might help little ones appreciate cozy bibs.
There’s another camo pattern to choose from, along with a few other colors. The $31 toddler boys’ bibs are machine washable and water-resistant, making them perfect for snowy and rainy days.
Best Fit for Teens (Girls)
These little girl snow pants are from Roxy, one of my favorite clothing brands as a kid. The toddler girls’ pants are available in 8-16 year-old-fits.
Best for Skiing (Girls)
I am obsessed with the color options to choose from! These pants are perfect for trips to Colorado. They’re water-resistant and have an extended wear system, perfect for skiing.
My only con is that they’re not machine washable.
Best Machine Washable Bib (Girls)
These bib overalls are similar to the option above. However, you can put this in the washing machine!
They have an elastic waistband and adjustable straps for comfort and the perfect fit. They’re also water-resistant. I highly recommend making water-resistant and water-repellent activewear part of your winter apparel checklist.
Water-resistant clothing is the key to staying dry from ice and rain!
