They use ropes and a hammock to create a safe body sledding area. This hill was way too steep to sled on so they figured out a way to make it safe and usable. They also used 3 of our new knots to create this! Not pictured was a hammock at the end to catch them in case they let go of the rope, and other ropes all up the side to help pull them back up the icy hill. This was totally child led and executed. It took them about two hours of failing and trying again before they got it how they wanted it.
