This time of year is tough in Northern Ontario. The mornings are below freezing, but the afternoons warm up nicely, although there is still a definite chill to the wind. This is why my daughter loves ponchos. Since she is only 4, buttons and zippers aren’t the easiest for her to do but you have to be kidding me if you think she will let someone help her get dressed! Haha! Ponchos, like the Ragged Falls Poncho, are great for this. She can slip it easily over her head, they are cinch to layer over clothing, and she loves the way they fan out when she twirls. Who can argue with that?!
