First we have to do a risk/benefit analysis and decide what we were going to do to make sure we were going to 'Leave No Trace'. Then we were ready to get outside.
Once we had a shelter ready it was time to try making a spark with a fire steel. These are better than matches for fire starting on an adventure because it doesn't matter if they get wet.
Ms Mackay started a fire then we used Mrs Wragg's embers to get the Kelly Kettle going for hot chocolate.
It was a bit windy and to start with there wwas a bit of smoke swirling around but that soon stopped as the fire got going. You can't see the fire inside a Kelly Kettle - it is all inside in the middle of the tube. Can you see how we avoided scorching the ground and killing the grass in this photo?
The rope is the perimeter to keep people away from the campfire.
Then it was time for a sing song! Our Easter song is 'Spring into Action'!
