Fire lighting and den building

Fire lighting is our most popular activity. Pupils will have a go at making fire and build dens and test if they’re waterproof. An ideal workshop for pupils aged 7+.

In this workshop we’ll introduce fire lighting to pupils in a safe environment. Children will learn about the dangers of fire and fire safety. But of course, they’ll have fun too! They’ll get hands-on having a go using fire steels and cotton wool, as well as learn about the science of lighting a fire and keeping it going.

Then we’ll move on to den building. Kids will build dens using tarpaulins and sticks. It requires thinking about how to use their resources to build their den and stay dry – we do test them!

This workshop is ideal for developing communication skills and promoting team work.
