Survey Says Kids Want More Outdoor Skills

I can relate to this as I had to replace ten steps from the deck to the back yard with not much than a hammer, screwdriver and handsaw; now finishing up putting some 4 by 4 pieces of lumber around the back yard garden, and unfortunately, I didn’t pick up much in the way of carpentry skills growing up… a study has found millions of kids want to learn more traditional outdoor skills but have parents who lack the knowledge to teach them. Six in ten parents wish they were better equipped to teach their kids things like cooking on a campfire, reading a map, roasting a marshmallow, building a raft, or putting up a tent… but no mention of some basic carpentry around the house… that would definitely be on my list.
