Snowshoeing Tips (for toddlers, and beyond): 

  • Rent snowshoes for toddlers – go in and make sure they fit with winter boots
  • Use the washroom before layering up!
  • Go with a friend to feed off of
  • Check expectations!
  • Go to a park or backyard (not a big, deep snow trail)
  • Bring a sled as backup!! Give them choices
  • Do what you’re encouraging, and have fun yourself
  • Small exposures add up
  • Plus, get YOUR snowshoes on before strapping up kids or babywearing

Other Winter Tips: 

  • Practice wearing gloves ahead of time [hand warmers are a great backup to hold (even without gloves)]
  • Have something to look forward to after the adventure – often to warm you up!!
