Parents, educators and children at Hand and Hand have all been wondering, “What are the best gloves out there for small hands in both freezing mornings and rainy days, that let children still have the ability to grip things?!?”

Here’s some examples of gloves we’ve found work well. Thick, ski/snow mitts with gussets that open to let kids’ hands (and thumbs!) in easily seem to be the best for really cold and also rainy days, while thermal gloves work well on cold days but still let kids manipulate their fingers for fine motor movements.

Alix noted there are some waterproof mitts at Kradles (about $20-25)
