Rink games for 5 and 3 year olds
11 Replies

Any suggested rink games for 5 and 3 year olds?  I was going to make a "zamboni"/chair for the 3 year old to push around on the rink.  He hasn't laced up yet.  The 5 year old is starting Tyke hockey,…Continue

4) Floodlight fixtures x3 ($15) and lightbulbs

Hi Jay,

According to "Accuweather.Com" it looks like you have some cold weather during the next 15-day period. Try protecting your ice foundation during the warm stretches until the colder temperatures return. Hopefully you'll get a chance to "lace em up" again this year! Trust me, I'm battling "Mother Nature" done here in the Denver area, trying to squeeze a few more weeks out of my rink!

I just looked at "" for your looks like you've got some cold weather on the way. Just make sure that you protect your ice base during the warm periods. Here in the Denver area from 1/2 to 1/5 we had temperatures of 52, 56, 60 and 65 degrees (in celcius I guess its 11, 13, 16 and 18) but my boys still had a great skate last night and my ice is in good shape. I have uploaded a photo of my rink when its covered...I basically start my day every morning by putting the cover on. Not my favorite thing to do every morning but it is worth it if it prolongs my skating season. Good luck...hopefully you'll get that cold weather!
