I’d ordered us some coats from the Mountain Warehouse website but they were a little small for my kids. Luckily there is a store nearby and they were easily exchanged and I picked up some other bits I needed whilst we were there.
Now to test the coats with a grumpy 8-year-old and my little 5-year-old fashionista, would they both be happy at the same time?! Having had the lurgy we didn’t go on a massive walk so just ventured out a couple of times on a few shorter walks. The first short walk we went on was to some nearby woodland. The kids both looked smart in their new coats and both loved the trendy colour they had chosen.
As we made our way into the woodland we started our hunt for conkers, acorns and fallen leaves for an arty project we planned later. We soon filled a plastic bag we had taken with us and my Son found the pockets on his coat useful as he started stashing his acorn finds in them. Every good Autumn coat must have conker/acorn pockets it seems! We didn’t find conkers this time but will be on the lookout for them next time.
I bought a size bigger than I usually would for my children. All views are my own and I’ve received no incentive to write this.
