Keeping Kids Active: Sledding


  • Post Image

    By: Dawn Juntilla

    A timeless activity that all ages enjoy!  Find the nearest hill and go sledding.  Dry or compact snow works the best to get your sled going.  If the snow is really wet, consider packing down a trail.  Or, send dad down in the sled a couple of times to help create a path. Spray some non-stick cooking spray on the bottom of your sled to get things going.  Don’t have a hill?  No problem.  A light dusting of snow on a driveway is the perfect place to sled.  Older kids could easily pull the younger ones or one another.   Share your sledding stories.  Or, tell us how you keep your kids active in the winter.  Just post a comment below.
