No Sled, No Problem- Check out These Alternatives


Just as the snow predictions call for a trip to the store to purchase milk and bread, so does a trip to the store to buy one of the few sleds left on the shelf.  But in case you didn’t make it time, we found a few alternatives that you probably already have at home.

  • Baby pool – These work great as sleds but even better if you turn them inside out so the smooth side touches the snow.
  • Plastic Lids to large plastic storage containers.
  • Laundry basket especially for little kids.
  • Large pieces of Cardboard.
  • Canoes
  • Kayaks

There seems to be a new trend in using small boats for sledding.  Take a look at this video from Meanwhile in Canada of Brad Armstrong kayaking in Canada.

Take a look at this -6 people, one canoe sledding right into… keep watching.
