My boy is 9 and loves all the survival shows so for Christmas I got him a flint and steel kit. He brought it to camp and after making some char cloth in the wood burner, he set out to make a fire. It was a little trial and error at first, getting the right tinder bundle, etc but he ended up getting a fire started.
I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
