Flint and Steel – Light My Fire FireSteel Scout
Lighting fires with a flint and steel is one of the most popular activities in a forest school setting. It is also one that can be done safely at home and is a very useful life skill for children of all ages.
Our favourite flint and steel are the Light My Fire Bio Scout Firesteels. They are great for small hands and their bright colour makes them easier to spot when they are invariably left lying around. They last for ages and also have a handy emergency whistle. You can even use the striker to shave a stick to create additional kindling (this is quite a challenge!). The Light My Fire Firesteel flint and steel is available in blue, red and orange.
We have a great videos from Wilf and Gracie Mai to show how it’s done. 🙂
