Summer Sledding with Ice

Look at that face!! 

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs for ideas of awesome kid stuff: Play At Home Mom 
Here is the direct link to their Ice Block Sledding idea.

I didn't really set out to do this activity tonight.  We were playing ball outside and it was HOT, in the 90's.  Suddenly, I remembered reading about the ice block sledding and that I had a blue "ice skating rink" for toys/characters in the freezer that hadn't been used in a looong time. 

I pulled it out to give the sledding idea a try.  Did we have a fantastic time!

If you have a hill, you should do this. 

If that sled didn't melt, I think at 1am (the time that I am writing this) we would STILL be out there sledding.  She even caught her first lightening bug and took it down the hill :)

Once the sled was too small for her to fit on, it occured to her some friends (who would fit) may like to try it out:

 When everyone ... EVERYONE (all of her favorite critters) had a ride, it was a skating rink again!

The sled for next time will be bigger, pinker, and glittery-er:
