How to Build a Sled
Step 1: Determine which materials you need for your sled.
Make a plan. Create a simple blueprint or drawing of what you would like. For something simple, use a rectangular piece of corrugated cardboard with a rounded front. Include an extra layer of cardboard at the base to increase durability and longevity Have Fun! Pick something wild or goofy!
Step 2: Collect corrugated cardboard, duct tape, scissors, and any decorations you want to use to personalize your sled. Try to gather like cardboard: thickness, etc. When you think you have enough tape, triple the amount!
Step 3: Cut your cardboard according to your new blueprint and try to make the edges as clean and straight as possible. Choose a piece with a rounded edge for the top front of the cardboard. Using a design that includes folding the cardboard could weaken the overall construction of your sled, just keep that in mind.
Step 4: Add sides by cutting out cardboard pieces that match the length of your sled. Make them as high as you wish and attach using tape and reinforce with more duct tape. You can also include a roof and make a any car, spaceship, Bat mobile, or design you would like.
Step 5: Get creative! Paint and tape it up to your very own specifications, and dream!
Step 6: Use decorations such as emblems, logos, glitter, or stickers to personalize your sled. Don’t forget to decorate your pilot’s helmet and find a fun costume for him or her!
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
