Winter Packing List for Students

Winter Packing List for Students featured image


Do you want to meet a snowman? Explore an Ice Palace? Skate down a canal? Take your students out of the classroom and into a winter wonderland for an adventure of a lifetime.

Dropping temperatures may make packing seem daunting, but the key to surviving the winter weather is layers. Your students should have a good pair of snow boots, a thick coat and snow pants to help battle the cold.

On our winter packing list we recommend keeping things light to ensure a great educational tour. An extra pair of socks is great as your students will be outside for large portions of the day, and scarves, hats, and gloves are necessary to keep everyone cozy and warm.

Let go of your frozen fears, become one with the wind and sky and the cold won’t bother you anyway.
