If you remember using bread bags to keep your feet from getting wet while sledding as a kid, you may also remember this simple DIY for keeping snow from running up your coat sleeves while sledding.
All you need are a pair of long socks and scissors.
Cut off the tip of your sock below the heel, but above the toe box.
You can use your scissors to cut a thumb hole if you’d like — or if wearing mittens, keep the tip of the sock on and just cut a thumb hole.
Any way you cut it, this will help keep snow from shooting up your jacket sleeves and freezing you while you sled or enjoy other winter activities. It will also provide an extra layer of warmth on your lower arms and hands.
It just may be the simplest DIY we’ve ever seen to help keep warm this winter.
