Cold weather gear that your kids will love
What parent doesn't struggle with their kids to put on warm clothes when the weather is cold? With this cold weather gear, they'll jump at the chance to get ready to go outside! From mittens to scarves to hats, here are five fun pieces to keep your little ones warm -- while still having fun -- this winter.
Lumbering Lumberjack Hat from Etsy
For a little guy who isn't keen on wearing both a hat and scarf to keep warm on those bitter cold days, check out this cheeky Lumbering Lumberjack Hat ($37) available on Etsy. The hat and beard portion are two separate knit pieces that connect easily with a little button so that your little lumberjack can take the beard on and off as he (or she!) pleases. Plus, this set is completely customizable -- pick your stripe colors, beard colors, size and more. Psst -- it's also available in adult sizes!

Fleece Mohawk Hat from GAP
You're going to win major mom points for picking up one of these Fleece Mohawk Hats ($13) from GAP. Not only is it super soft and warm with ear flaps to keep his ears toasty on chilly days, but it comes in four hot prints to go with the 'hawk, including rock star guitars, skulls and snowboards. Our suggestion: if this is a hat he loves and is happy to wear, pick up a few colors and in a few sizes to last for winters to come!
UGG Bailey Bow Boots from Chasing Fireflies
Moms of girls who refuse to wear anything but glittery ballet flats all year round are going to be so excited about the UGG Bailey Bow Boots ($120), available from Chasing Fireflies. Those pretty little satin bows on the back of these hot pink boots will completely distract your girly girl from the fact that these are actually super warm boots for the coldest winter weather. Surely, these must be the boots that ballerinas wear in the snow? Right? (wink, wink!)

Matching is so last winter -- especially if you're a stylish little girl! She will go zany over these Zany Black Arm Warmers ($13) from Little Miss Matched. They come in a set of three -- each arm warmer with a different pattern (polka dots, stripes and stars), so that she can mix-and-match two arm warmers, creating a new combination every day.
