Looking for some outdoor fun this winter? If you’ve got the space, you might be considering building a backyard rink (lucky you!). And, one Edmonton man has made it easier than ever to set it up. Say hello to ‘Dad’s Rink Kit’.

The premise is exactly as straightforward as you would expect. Depending on the size of the rink, you’ll be sent the necessary materials to make it and a guide for building it. Of course, you’re going to need to provide the water yourself.
