Video Wonder: A DIY Backyard Luge Track

Think you know sledding? You ain’t got nothing on these kids, who transformed their entire backyard into a home-made luge run perfect for plastic saucers.

In the video, the sledders double as newscasters, reporting on three key features of their 2015 winter carnival. Cooper explains the strategy behind his specialty “knee hop,” while Maggie explains her signature “spin sister.” The tykes even have a sponsor—the local hardware store.
