Plastic snow sled as water table and beach tow
Don't pack the snow sled into deep storage just yet! From Lisa:
I use a sled on top of a picnic table as a makeshift water table – just fill the sled with water and the kids sit on the benches while they play.
I’ve also found that loading a sled up with kids, toys, and equipment can be a good way of pulling things across the sand at the beach.
Must interject here: I am recalling one particular trip to the beach (solo with kids) in which I schlepped bags, backpacks, etc. across the sand, all while pushing a @#$% stroller. I had a perfectly good one of these sleds sitting in my garage at the time. D'oh!
