Who needs to buy a plastic sled from REI when you can build one with some wood and an old pair of skis?
We call it Lucas’ box. When we’re outside with it, it’s the box. Do you want to get in your box? Alright, get in! I don’t know where that term came from, but it is what it is, so I’m going with it.
I wish I could take credit for this cool man made sled, but our friends actually gave it to us. Or, maybe they are just letting us borrow it. I’m not sure, I guess I need to clarify that with them. Anyways, they built it for their girls when they were younger!
Isn’t it awesome!
This thing is heavy. Pulling it up the hill with a toddler in it is a great workout. Seriously. I don’t need a gym with a life like this. (Ha. I wish.)
It’s got a rope on both sides, so you can pull/push it from either side depending on if you’re going up or down the hill. It’s big enough to store toys, clothes, food, drinks or what not.
We might use it as a Christmas card prop! Wouldn’t that be cute?
It is probably the coolest sled ever, don’t you agree? Yes, I guess it is meant more for walking with. I don’t imagine this would go down a steep hill very well with a child yelling weee!! We haven’t tried that yet, but I’m afraid of what would happen if you were going too fast and it fell over.
Plastic cheap sleds for going down the hill fast.
Strong wooden sleds for getting a workout and taking a hike through the bea-utiful wilderness.
(Sorry, no moose encounters on this trip.)
