Remember that one time when the Novogratzes put a slide in a basement? That was awesome, but it was also labor intensive and permanent. Here's a quick, cheap and temporary take on the indoor stairway slide.

Blogger J at The Contemplative Creative has fond childhood memories of her church's annual harvest festival, the high point of which was a church stairwell converted to a slide with cardboard and duct tape. J decided to recreate that magic at home. Her kids warmed up to the new slide by sending down race cars and balls before launching themselves down.
