Track Pants, Shorts with Inner Tights (Allow mobility and protection)

In both conditions,

1. Small backpack (No wet wipes*)
2. Water Bottle
3. Mozzie Repellent & Medication (No Patch*)
4. Snack (Lunch Box Preferably*)
5. Cap or Hat
6. Poncho
7. 1 set of change of clothes and
8. Two Ziplock Bags 

should be carried at all times.

It is advisable to put on dark coloured clothing to allow for easier washing time and effort at home (We understand the pain of muddy laundry for the mommies and daddies who have to do the laundry)

*We are introducing a new initiative to run our forest school with an eco-friendly approach. Wet wipes is not advised as it will drop out of their bag or hands in the midst of the session by some of our kids (Alternatively we suggest using water to wash instead). Mozzie Patches is not advised because it tend to drop into the forest space, after our children bundle around in the woods. (Alternatively, we suggest using mosquito repellent spray outside the park before entering)
