Since moving to the woods we have had to battle flying bugs of all kinds every time we go outside. We now have a collection of products to help protect against and eliminate these pests so we can safely play outside and explore our new property in the woods! Below you will find seven types of gear to make outdoor play safe and enjoyable!
Rubber Boots– Soon after we moved it became clear that if we wanted to explore the woods on our property we would want some rubber boots. There is a little stream that flows on our land and I am itching to start exploring it! Tall boots like rubber boots are also another level of protection against ticks. By tucking your pants into your socks and boots you can prevent ticks from crawling up your legs and attaching themselves there. We bought Caden a pair from Target similar to these from Amazon.
Gloves– Gardening gloves or work gloves really come in handy when exploring the great outdoors! They kids’ protect hands from many dangers; such as splinters, thorns, and bites or urine from any animals you might find and pick up. We picked up a pair of children’s gardening gloves from Target for Caden, but I think these would be even better because of the leather palms.
All Terrain bug spray– I bought this big spray before we moved. I liked it because it is a DEET-free, all natural bug spray. It works great, but we recently switched to another brand because although it is a spray, it comes out at a lotion which we needed to rub in and that is not as convenient as a more liquid spray. But I still like this brand, but wish it was more of a spray than a lotion.
