Learn how to light a fire without matches, build a shelter to sleep in, cook on a fire, hunt for bugs and much more. From essential bushcraft basics and Stone Age survival skills to joyful outdoor play, this book is packed with ideas to bring your little ones closer to nature and all its magical offerings.
Young children will be immersed in imaginative, gloriously messy play and crafts, whilst older ones can get to grips with more complex activities like stone tool making and sourcing water. Whether in an organised setting, a group of friends or a family outing, the fun-filled games will build confidence, bonding and result in happy and energised children. Entertaining anecdotes from the authors’ own experience of surviving in the wild can be read aloud to children, bringing to life the thrilling reality of sleeping in a cave or savouring your first-ever foraged meal.
