More importantly, have it ON them before they think they need it. My kids tend to wait until they get wet before putting it on, then they get cold, and the crying starts. They do much better when I insist they put it on before we go any further down the river. Float trips aren't as critical, but anything with some splashy wave trains or more, get it ono them while they are already warm and dry!
And you can never have enough snacks. Never. LOL
