Something like a sleeping bag or clothing? I don't know, don't have any kids. , or like a binocolars (is that how you spell it?).OK - my boy will be 10 at the end of the month - what bushcrafty item do I get him for his birthday? He has a tarp, hammock, backpack. SWMBO says 'no knives'...so what can I get him??????
I don't know where to buy those DVD's but a bow is best made with Taxus (is that correct?) wood, the arrows of that nutbushthing with very straight twines, heat them above a fire to straighten them. The bow has to be around, as I remember, 4,5 cm thick. As the ends about 2.
I've been looking about for information on bushcraft for Children and there's hardly anything that's orientated around the younger generation, the future generation of bushcrafters.
So, I want some help from you lot to compile a list of activities, with descriptions as appropriate, of activities for kids. Feel free to list obvious things as well as more abstract and I would like everything you can think of, this is the opportunity for a huge brainstorm ):
The activities can be practical and theoretical, interactive or presentational...Whatever, as long as it's orientated around younger people.
I'm looking forward to hearing your suggestions and I'll compile them into a resource that we can all use.
