Here is the hand drill I bought from the Maasai while in Africa. It will be Darby's when she is older. However we play with it all the time now. She can now get it very, very hot...time to practice outside. We are always building camps inside. Notice her tent, campfire, tripod for cooking, and incredible passion and skill? Getting her ready for her time alone in the wild at the age of seven. How I adore this little girl.
She now knows how to set up her tent poles and properly make a fire circle. She is also so excited because she can now cause sparks using the flint and steel. She's my little survivalist! I know I'm weird...don't care either.
