Loopy Luge craft

High speeds! Banked curves! Slick ice! Crayola® Crayons and Glitter Glue capture the drama and speed of a luge run.

    Can you imagine why luge (from the French word for sled) is considered to be one of the most dangerous winter sports? Speeds up to 80 miles (128 km) per hour could be one reason. A helmet as the only protection a "slider" has could be another. Spiked gloves and subtle leg and shoulder movements are the only controls a slider has to make the luge a winner.

    There are not many luge runs in the world. Each run has about 14 to 16 curves. Some are steep, some are long, and some are loopy.

    With Crayola Colored Pencils or crayons, plot your imaginary luge run. Draw in curves and banked runs. Don't forget the slick ice! Make it really challenging.

    Imagine yourself lying on top of the small sled zipping along on the ice. Draw yourself "sliding" on a luge.

    Add finishing touches with Crayola Glitter Glue. It works great for shiny ice and the sun's glare.
