  • Super Challenge: While you are out there make some tracks and create designs, or mazes, or fanciful artwork to simply enjoy or take a snapshot to share your P.L.A.Y.-filled day.
  • Super-Duper Challenge: Write your own sled adventure and answer the question “Who would you like to see out your window to go sledding with?”
  • Super Spectacular Challenge: Create a friends and family event to be out in the snow under the full moon with thermoses of hot cocoa and marshmallows too!
  • Super-Duper-Spectacular Challenge: Can you spot any “smooth sled like” tracks near your home in the woods or at the local nature sanctuary? Who made these sled-like tracks? Are they near a brook, stream, or water source? What did they make this track with? Hint: Perhaps it was a Castor Canadensis that did! * See The Adventures of Paddy the Beaver (here) to learn more.
