They wore them to school on Friday.

I expressly told them that when they took them off to keep them in their coat pockets.

DH got them ready to go out on their bikes - their gloves are not in their pockets and they both think they've left them at school.

Grrr. Please tell me I'm not BU, surely it wasn't too much remember?!

(They're 5 and 7 btw).

ditto elastic

JojoMamanBebe does glove clips and elastic for gloves. If you don't want to sew.

You really need to sew them into the coats. They are very easy to lose and I'm someone who never loses anything.

It is annoying.

My solution is to buy a job lot of gloves when they are on sale. It means we never run out.

But gloves yesterday? Are you in the UK?

I put elastic on DS's last year for school. I was told I got a special mention in assembly. V odd being a good example. grin

I just buy loads of cheap pairs in the same style.

at 5 and 7 they should be able to look after their gloves

probaly in lost property

normally i would say elastic/tie to coat for younger children

though my dc nearly 7 would be very insulted to have gloves tied on like a baby

but in your childrens case maybe it might teach them to bring home

YABU to be really cross.

Mildly irritated maybe, but they are too young to be filly responsible for small items like gloves, imo.
Put them on a piece of string through their coats next time.

5 year old able to look after gloves? My 8 year old can't manage it!

I lose count of how many hat and gloves set I buy each winter. I feel your pain grin

string on special offer

Yes, seems like elastic is the way forward. Have done that for DD (17mths) but did think that boys were old enough to left unattached!

MmeProf yes we're in the UK but in the balmy SE (and kids are of Scottish descent so very hardy!)

cornsilk I did that too, do you mean magic gloves?

elliepac thanks for sharing my pain, it does help to know I'm not alone!

perardua will let you know if I get an assembly mention too grin

quirky thanks for listing the offers, I do appreciate it, but the way mine are they'd probably lose the clips too...

Off for a much needed cup of tea and a biscuit (God I LOVE that emoticon) grin

Just for you grin

Three little kittens,
They lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
We sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost.
What! Lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have no pie.

The three little kittens,
They found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
See here, see here,
Our mittens we have found.
What! Found your mittens,
You darling kittens!
Then you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have some pie.

The three little kittens,
Put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;
Oh, mother dear,
We greatly fear
Our mittens we have soiled.
What! Soiled your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then they began to sigh,
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
They began to sigh.

The three little kittens,
They washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
Oh mother dear,
Look here, look here,
Our mittens we have washed.
What! Washed your mittens,
You're such good kittens.
I smell a rat close by!
Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
Hush! Hush! Hush!
I smell a rat close by.
