The Most Creative “Sleds” Seen at the Art Museum This Weekend

Philadelphians celebrated the arrival of Jonas by hitting the not so powdery “slopes” of the Art Museum steps this past Saturday.  While some city dwellers were prepared for a day of sledding, many were left to use their imagination on what nearest household item could be made into a sled. Among the most popular were broken down cardboard boxes.
