No one who lives in Ohio and has faced the dreaded winters we have had could ever forget sled riding. Next to building snowmen, it is a great pass time for kids and their families when there is snow on the ground.
My children always loved to go sled riding. They would pray for a snow day just so they could go sled riding. Even grown people enjoy sled riding. You can visit our local park in the winter and see tons of people on their sleds. Whole families go out and slide down hills on sleds.
With the winter we had this past year, there was nothing else to do but to pull out the Flexible Flyer and go sled riding.
It is made of birch wood and steel. It is durable and made with easy to pull steering cords. These sleds will last a long time. It is 48 inches long and is safe for all members of the family.
They aren't real expensive, and it provides tons of fun for the whole family. Instead, of letting those kids drive you crazy on those snow days home from school, try sled riding. It is a fun time for everyone.
I recommend the Flexible Flyer as a great source of fun in snow.
Note: If you have really small children you will need a much smaller sled called a Toddler Sled. These have pull cords so you can pull the child along in the snow. These are available just about anywhere.
