I write regular articles for Bushcraft and Survival Magazine on the topic of bushcraft with children. Mainly because I have a profound belief that time outdoors in nature and engaging with traditional skills is good, indeed vital, for childrens development. Also partly because I love practicing bushcraft with my children and want to share ideas with others.
My children get to do a lot more bushcraft than you see in the magazine though. Here is a snapshot of this weeks fun;
Dusk rasberry picking.
Backgarden foraging for fat hen, redshanks, penny cress and chickweed.
Eating borage flowers.
