There is a chill in the air, the leaves are changing color and pumpkins appear at doorsteps. It must be fall! This time of year can be fun and exciting for children. Halloween is fast approaching, its harvest season, and the leaf piles are so much fun to jump in. When the weather gets cooler we all want our little ones to stay warm and comfortable while still enjoying the beautiful outdoors. With some help from our friends at Oakiwear we have come up with a list of the best kids outdoor gear for fall. Click on the titles to learn more about each product.

These trail gloves are warm and soft and the best outdoor glove for kids. The all neoprene design is soft and flexible. Neoprene gloves are not seam sealed, so water does enter some.

They are well made, and stretchy for growing hands.
Elastic wrist strap with Velcro adjusts easily for snug fit.
Soft and flexible all neoprene fabric to help with dexterity
Perfect for keeping little hands warm while getting wet!

No outdoor adventure kid should head into the wild without their own Explorer Journal! We love how these journals encourage kids to get outdoors and learn from writing down what they see and do while exploring the world around them. This is a must have kids outdoor gear item for this fall. Each Journal is spiral bound, has a hard cover and back, and comes with a pen. These journals are perfect for recording every adventure, sketching and drawing, and keeping track of each newly found treasure.
