2. To fashion the steerer, use a craft knife to make an angled cut at each end of 1 stick, leaving a 2 1/2-inch piece (A). Save 1 end (B) and discard the other. Lay 2 whole sticks side by side and hot-glue piece A across them, near the top.

3. Cut another stick in half at an angle and lay 1 half on each side of the 2 whole sticks, as shown. Glue piece B across the 4 sticks, near the sled's center, trimming it if necessary.

4. Finally, glue on the 2 remaining whole sticks for runners. When the glue has dried, attach a length of cord to hang the sled and have your child decorate the sled top with puffy paint or glitter paint.
