Build a Bridge
There’s something instinctive about building a bridge, even if it’s just to span the smallest of streams, ditches or rivers. And kids certainly love the excitement of trying to build a natural structure – cos they just love playing outdoors and being creative, don’t they?
- Be prepared to get dirty!
- Use only fallen branches
- Wrap up warm
Tips and advice
This adventure is part one of two… an experiment to introduce our young adventurers to a simple of the challenge; we will return to this challenge in the spring/summer when we can attempt to build a structure to span a wide stream. It was way too cold today to be falling into the water!
So, the idea is simple; get up early, enjoy a winter’s morning and find a water filled ditch or a small stream and use naturally fallen wood to build a bridge structure across that span of water. And then of course, you have all got to use the bridge … hopefully without getting wet!
