This morning we brushed up on our survival skills.
This summer I’ve shared regular updates of what we’ve been up to during the school holidays – you can see a summary at our 2020: 42 Activities of Summer page.
First we carved tent poles using sharp knives. Next we used flint and steel to light cotton wool and shavings from the wood we’d just cut. We then made a shelter, and a swing using some soft bark for the seat.
There were lots of prickly green conker casings on the floor. We took a few back to our room, opened them, and watched the conkers inside turn from white to brown overnight.
Have you had any good survival skill experiences? Where do you collect your conkers?
