Welcome to the world of outdoor play, EVERY day! Kids don’t care about rain and snow and at Spring Garden they get outside to move three times a day rain or shine, wet or dry, mud or mud. This is why Waldorf schools require proper outerwear for active kids.
Unfortunately, the big box stores don’t have these items on the list of back-to-school essentials, so finding a pair of rain pants locally, in August, can be tricky. Besides, if Target had four pairs of rain pants, one of the other 100+ Waldorf families in your area might have snagged them first. And so . . . here are some places where you can buy rain gear for the kiddos before August 27th (6 weeks from today!).
Need it all? Here are three retailers who sell jackets, pants and boots, all in one place:
If you only need Pieces Parts you can shop above or also try:
Oftentimes, each of these retailers will have all these items or run out of stock in one or more items. So, it helps to shop early. And, of course, there’s always thrift shopping and swapping with other families!
