Let Me Think Should kids wear Ski Mittens or Gloves-MCTi

Should kids wear Mittens or Gloves??

Should kids wear mittens or gloves?  In our home, it’s a longstanding debate.  Two of my kids insist on wearing gloves, and two of my kids always wear mittens.  

Honestly, when my kids wear mittens, their hands are always significantly warmer.  Factually, mittens are always warmer than mittens (though not because your fingers are closer together).  Mittens are warmer than gloves because they have less surface area, which means less area to get COLD. 

If you need warmth, or maybe you’re teaching your kids to ski, I recommend mittens.  If you’re going to be doing activities that require a lot of grabbing and manual dexterity, like playing with snow toys or having a snowball fight, gloves are your best option.
