Backyard Skating Rinks

First, decide how big you want to make your ice rink. Pick an area as level as possible. Make a rectangular enclosure (like a sandbox), approximately 6" to 8" high. You can also use 2" x 6" or 2" x 8" boards, held upright by stakes, or you can use a large diameter PVC pipe, railroad ties, or a shoveled out snow bank, if available. Lay a large sheet of 7MM (white only) PE sheet in the center, overlapping the enclosure to the ground. Fill with 3" to 6" of water depending on the size, and weight, of your kids, and wait for it to freeze. Along with the PE sheet, you should purchase a 4" roll of special white tape. This tape will repair tears and can also be used for joining and sealing sheets, by using an ordinary paint removing type of heat gun. The tape will weld to the PE sheet making a positive seal. Hope for cold weather and enjoy!
