Go sledding


All you need is a hill (more or less) and a sled. And everyone has a sled. Ok, not everyone. I don't have a sled. But if you have a sled, cool beans. If not, you can buy one for less than $20 if you look in the right places. Places like Wal-Mart and those generic dollar stores, again. Or... wait for it... waaaaaaaiiiiit... you can IMPROVISE! And here are some suggestions:

  • Lids to large, plastic storage containers/trash cans, etc.
  • Vinyl outdoor cushions
  • Large slabs of cardboard (bend the front up a little so that it doesn't get stuck)
  • Office chair mats (the smooth ones, obviously)
  • Those short and long plastic storage containers (again, make sure the bottom of it is smooth)
  • Cafeteria trays (just remember... you didn't hear it from me)

And keep in mind that you don't want the path of your merry, little sled to lead to a road or a "frozen" body of water. Trust me.

We have a couple sleds and we've used our driveway or ditches because  they have hills going down to them.

I wish I was able to do this, when I lived where we snowed.

We love to sled when we have snow! And it's a great workout
