How to dress for being outdoors

Base layer - Tuck base layers neatly into trouser waist band (this stops any external drafts reaching the skin) Neatly wrap trouser leg around leg and tuck into sock avoid lumps that make boots uncomfortable. Doing this reduces the likelihood of socks slipping.

Add mid layer - For example  thin fleece or jumper Then put on waterproof trousers or dungarees. If enough room tuck mid layer into the waterproof trouser or dungarees , this stops drafts.

Then add wellies.

Finally, if necessary, hats and gloves when cold. 

In warm weather, children still need to have long sleeves, long trousers, wellies and a waterproof coat.
