If you live in the Northeast, chances are you’ve been hammered by snow, rain, ice and sleet over the last few days. I know it seems like it will never end, but when the snow eventually does stop falling why not pack up the kids and take them ice skating for a little fun (and exercise!)? Hopefully you purchased a pair of the toddler ice skates we found a few weeks back, so all you need now are some fun ice skating accessories to make skating safer. Try these:
A kids’ snow helmet is a must-have when learning and enjoying any outdoor sport. This Red by Burton snow helmet ($30) will give you peace of mind.
This walker-like skating trainer ($36) will help your child build confidence on the ice–and cut down on falls, too.
A pair of magic stretch gloves ($2) are a great accessory for toddlers learning to skate as they allow dexterity and shelter from the cold. Bonus: they’re cheap enough to buy several pairs so you don’t have to worry when they inevitably get lost.
