plastic tub on skisWhen I was a kid, my brother and I had so much fun in winter. The things we did would make our parents cringe, but if it was dangerous, it was the most fun in the world. Ya know, like tying a sled onto the back of a bicycle and see how far down the driveway you could get while hanging onto the sled for dear life, laughing all the way.

If you had tons of fun playing with a sled when you were young, bring back that fun for your kids by screwing a plasitc tub sled to old skis. You can find the sled at your local hardware store. Glue foam padding to the inside of the sled to protect your butt. Use short screws and fat washers to avoid pulling through the plastic sled.

Your sled will go super fast and far and your kids will have a blast. So will you if you make one for yourself too. I think this is the ultimate in fun, and I can hear the peals and squeals of laughter from the kiddies now, can't you? Maybe you can even find a way to make the sled turn, so you don't run into that tree, because, ouch that will hurt.
