For the last two days the kids have been putting on their snowpants to go sliding (aka. sledding). Only this sliding  is done indoors down our basement steps.  They use the snow pants to increase their slide-ability. No sleds are involved, but if they ever think of using a piece of cardboard, I’ll let them. They do this for so long they get sweaty and it is a great deterrent from going outside.  I love it.  They play well together and laugh.  It keeps the house clean too.  I’m sure our neighbors hate us. But for now, it’s working for everyone, so I don’t plan on stopping them until the neighbors call or someone gets hurt.
