Ah the joys of spring–if you don’t like the weather, stick around for 15 minutes and it’s sure to change, right?! In Atlanta we start our morning chilly, we’re getting rained on in the middle of the day, and we are crazy hot by the late afternoon.
All of these changes mean that we’re constantly putting on coats, stripping them off, finding our rain coats and then struggling out of them minutes later. With all the buttons, zippers, and snaps multiplied by three squirmy active girls, we often get ready for the weather just when it starts to change again.
Thankfully my oldest, at 3.5, is finally able to button, zip, and snap her jackets into place–for the most part. Because she’s newly independent, she is insistent that she do it herself–which is a great learning opportunity for her but it definitely adds to the time it takes to get ready.
All my seasonal jacket woes clearly are not mine alone–the amazing thinkers behind Wrapeaze already came up with a solution that we were more than thrilled to review! Wrapeaze sent us their ingeniously designed rain poncho. With a simple velcro closure, both my 3.5 and 2-year old daughters can quickly put this raincoat on and head out the door to jump into puddles. The attached hood is perfectly sized to cover their heads but not dwarf them–they can easily see out without getting their face soaked.
If you are still experiencing cooler spring weather, Wrapeaze also makes fleece poncho jackets that are just as easy and quick to put on and take off. The prices for Wrapeaze jackets range from $24.99 for baby rain coats to $44.99 for adult fleece ponchos. We use ours at least three times a week and think it’s worth every penny!
