Such a simple skill which we all did as youngsters whilst sitting around the campfire, why not bring it indoors for the winter.

You do not even need to supply the knives given most Explorers tend to have their own, albeit poorly maintained. Bring a knife sharpener such as a Lanksy and show them knife maintenance followed by having a go at whittling one of the below items:

ItemDifficultyStarting Wood Size
Hedgehog WooggleEasy3cm diameter
Cutlery SetMedium7cm wide sawn into 1-2cm thick planks
Bear statueHard7-9cm

All you need is wood, knives, axe, saw and a drill should you be making the woggles.
