Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.


Every time the Guides (and adults) have tried this activity we have all loved it. personally I first tried this on a stinking hot January day at a Victorian State camp.

What is ice blocking? It is sliding down a hill on an ice block.

Equipment needed – one large grassy hill – one large ice block.

To make the ice block you need a large plastic container – 15 litre activity box

or large Tupperware container. Fill with 10 cm plus of water , add a hand full of salt, and freeze. It takes at least 2 – 3 days for these to freeze (A week is better though). Allow one ice block per 3 – 4 girls.

Ask the girls to bring an old towel along (they get quite stained if the grass is freshly cut).

The guides love this, they get heaps of exercise pushing the ice blocks back up the hill for the next person.

After a while you can have races – funny ways of going down the hill. Let the guides imaginations run with what they can do.

Plus don’t forget to add this activity to your list of non adventurous activities statistics.
