You don’t need snow to go sledging! This a hands on and creative fun filled activity.

One of the 'Cub Year Of Adventure 2015' activities


Sledges, paint, wallpaper, marker pens and strong glue.


1. Provide each team with a readymade sledge – these could be built or sourced locally.
2. Get each team to decorate their sledges.
3. Once the sledges have been decorated and are dry, it’s time to test them out.

Tips: Why not try sledging in the woods or parks that have a big hill?
If the Cubs are very crafty why not get them to create their own sledges.

Grass sledges are often available on campsites. Alternatively equipment can be hired from suitable companies. The course needs to be clear of hazards, both along its route and at the end, and have a gradient that will allow descent at an appropriate speed for the age team participating.

A permit is not required to undertake this activity.
