Team Building Skis

I volunteered to make two pairs of Team Building Skis for a school field day event.  These can also be used for children's parties, scouting games, and company teamwork activities.  Below is a list of the supplies along with instructions.  The total cost for two pairs of skis was about $35.00.  That's a small price to pay, considering you get to enjoy watching people try to work together to "ski" across a field!


Here is a list of the supplies you will need:
  • 4 8-foot 2x6 boards
  • 100 feet of 3/8" polypropylene rope
  • Electrical Tape
Follow these instructions:
  1. From one end of each board, make a mark every 18".
  2. Mark the center of the board at each 18" increment.
  3. Drill 1" holes about 1/2" deep, then drill the rest of the hole with 3/8" bit.
  4. Cut rope into 4-ft lengths using electrical tape to keep rope from fraying.
  5. Feed rope through the holes and tie a knot on the bottom side that will recess into the 1" hole.
  6. Tie handles on the top side of the rope if desired.
  7. Hop on and start skiing.
