small shelter made in the woods

Above is a small shelter we made in the woods the other day. My kids love playing in the woods and personally I never feel like it is to early to start teaching them survival skills. So this time out in the woods we collected stick, leaves, bark to make a small shelter. It was interesting to see what their ideas are and it was just all around fun to create. We talked about keeping dry and the importance of having a safe shelter. Other things kids should know are~
Not to panic

and how to get help
This all comes with time but remember to keep at it cause you never know if/when it will be needed.

I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
