Happy New Year! It’s so great to be able to wake up to a completely fresh slate and peak organization. Winter has officially hit NYC and honestly, I’m here for it! My kids love winter activities like skiing and snowboarding, but one they really enjoy is sledding. It’s something they can do with each other and friends and all you need is your own sled! There’s no special shoes or boards or skis that need to be purchased.
When I began looking at sleds to buy, I was pleasantly surprised with the options these days. There are a plethora of different sleds to choose from and they are all so cool. You can go the traditional route and grab a plastic toboggan one like the good old days, or you can go the modern way and pick up a blow up option. My kids think those are the coolest new thing this winter! It makes you feel like you’re driving the sled down the hill, rather than just riding it down.
I feel like sledding is one of those activities that everyone has great childhood memories of! There were so many fun days spent on snowy hills after school and on weekends with friends. I love that my kids enjoy sledding because it’s an outdoor activity that keeps them occupied and happy. It’s so refreshing to have something that gets them outside, keeps them active and off technology. It’s a much needed break from school work, too!
What’s great about it, is that it’s such a versatile sport– if we can call it that! Everyone can use so many different forms of sleds. This is one of those activities that is available in so many places, too. All we need is a hill and snow! It’s something you can do as a family, as well, which is great time spent with one another.
I want to know, what are your favorite memories from sledding as a kid? And do your children enjoy it?
