Cold + Snow = Sledding Fun!

Sometimes there’s nothing better than some old-fashioned sledding fun.

It’s cheap, good exercise and a can make anyone feel like a kid again. Just be safe (Our friends at Safe Kids tell me we’re supposed to wear helmets while sledding. Who knew?) and respect private property boundaries.

Enjoy this great resource that has been provided by fellow grkids.com parents!
