Go sledging

Season:Winter
Duration:2 hours or less
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

Raid the kitchen cupboards and find the biggest baking tray or even grab a bin-liner - you’re guaranteed a faster and crazier ride than on those posh expensive sledges. We like the hills at Fell Foot.

Top tip: It's best to sledge down hills feet first, that way you can use your feet as brakes in case you go too fast or you are about to crash into somebody below! Don't forget your warm winter woollies so you don't get too cold.
