Survival Skills for Kids: Part 1

My 11-year-old son wants to learn about survival skills. He's already read a ton about first aid, and we're moving on from there. In addition to probably getting him his first Swiss army knife and teaching him how to use it safely, here are some handy resources I found to start us off this month:

Read and practice "The Five Knots Every Boy Should Know," The Dangerous Book for Boys, by Hal Iggulden, p 9, with backup from YouTube:

The Reef Knot or Square Knot

    Figure Eight Knot

    Bowline Knot

    Sheet Bend Knot

    Clove Hitch Knot

Wilderness Survival

I hope to post more on Survival Skills for Kids next month as we work our way through them.
