Questions to Ask Your Whittling & Woodcraft Camper – Thursday

If you’re wondering what your camper has been up to this week, here are some questions to get the conversation started…

  1. Wednesday the group learned about lashing and also how to use a manual hand drill.   What does the term lashing mean?  How is lashing used in the wilderness?
  2. Thursday the group took a whittling and woodcraft break to play a game called Werewolf.  How do you play?  What animals were you?  Did you hide, run, or a little bit of both as your strategy? 
  3. Here are a few fun would you rather questions to answer with your child-  Would you rather be able to control the weather (including hurricanes) or be able to control traffic (including I-40 and 540)?  Would you rather your fingers be made out of wood or be made out of clay?  Would you rather your house be made of 1 million tiny twigs or your house be made of 1 hundred large logs? Would you rather be able to craft beautiful furniture out of wood or beautiful musical instruments out of wood?
