Camping is something we enjoy doing together. We would like to go more often, but aren't always able. During those times we do go camping, it is important to us to teach the children how to do various camping skills like starting a fire from hot embers without a match.
With our supervision, we gave each of the older children
the supplies and opportunity to try it on their own.
Our oldest son attempted the task first.
When he finished trying, our oldest daughter took her turn.
See the flames!
A fabulous attempt, but the flames did not last.
Time for a little instruction and guidance.
