One may also ask, can you sled on cardboard? Cardboard. High on the list of free and DIY sleds is cardboard.

Moreover, how do you make a sled without a sled?
No Sled, No Problem- Check out These Alternatives
- Baby pool – These work great as sleds but even better if you turn them inside out so the smooth side touches the snow.
- Plastic Lids to large plastic storage containers.
- Laundry basket especially for little kids.
- Large pieces of Cardboard.
What can you put on the bottom of a sled to make it go faster?
Rub candle wax or standard ski wax on the underside of the sled to make it slide down the hill faster. Spray the bottom with cooking spray or other spray lubricant if you do not have access to wax. Build one or more snow ramps on the hill to accelerate your speed as you slide down.
