25 Rainy Day Essentials for Kids

Keep your little ones warm and dry with durable rain gear this winter. Pick up a classic yellow rain jacket with striped lining (I secretly wish it came in my size). One of my favorite items is the glow-in-the-dark umbrella covered in constellations and stars.

If you’re in a place where it’s freezing, you might want to go for an easy, all-in-one suit the kids can easily take on and off, or weatherproof rain pants that have elastic at the bottoms to keep the rain out. There are even items for older kids, like the water-resistant socks that can definitely come in handy for long days in the rain or snow.
