When hiking with children, give serious consideration to bringing along a bandana.

A bandana can be very useful in a number of ways: sweatband when wrapped around head; earmuffs; bandage; sunshade over neck when wrapped over top of head; washcloth; towel; sling; pad for lifting hot pots. It even can be doused in cold water and worn on the head to keep cool.
