Do you love to sled so much that you don't want to wait until it's winter again? Build yourself an ice-block sled and then slide down grass hills any time of year!!

A video of the sled in action!

This project takes the concept of "Ice Blocking" a step further by creating a platform that can hold the ice in place underneath you... making it much easier to ride!

Things you'll need:
- an electric drill
- a small sheet of plywood (any shape is fine, but we went with a round one)
- a few scrap pieces of 2x4
- Screws!
- 2 blocks of ice from your local grocery store

Place your ice blocks where you want them to be on the bottom of your plywood. Then, use the 2x4's to create a frame for them to rest in. This will prevent the ice from slipping out from underneath your sled. Secure the 2x4's with a few screws and then you're good to go!!

The sled works best on soft green grass! (dry, brown grass slows it down substantially)

The best thing about this project... if you happen to have scrap wood lying around, it will only cost you the $3 or $5 needed to purchase two blocks of Ice!!!

Have fun on the slopes!
