Introduction: Toddler B.o.b.
Break out bag for toddler.
Safe but useful items
Intro to education in wilderness for my little guy.
Just like his dads.. But miniature.
Step 1: Scavenge for Gear!
I'm big on not spending money when it comes to survival if possible. My 3 year old and I ran around the house for a good 3 hours finding useful items to add. Great way to keep him busy and learn about the basics of wilderness survival.
Chez mix/fruit energy bar
Piece of tube for a straw
Pop can burner
Small jar of honey
Some scraper thing(could be useful for something lol) wrapped with duct tape(unwrap tape and use.
Hot weather; sun hat, wet shirt, swim trunks, sunglasses
Cold weather; gloves, face covering hat, thin base layer sleep pants, wind breaking pants to go over top.
Bag to hold can also be use as fishing net, somewhat of a sifter, etc.
Pencil and pencil sharpener (kindling)
My old cell phone, charged.
Compact kids fishing rod(walmart, one thing we bought)
(He will not be using fire kit until he is way older lol) unless ofcourse there is a survival situation. This is again is for education because you never know. Teach them young and they will become masters of the wilderness. And when he is older he will be more prepared for the outdoors!
Step 2: Pack It Up
We packed each section in different bags and stuffed it all in an unused backpack we found.
We put his own tent through the straps. We are always keeping an eye out for useful items! Ongoing hobby that we can share.
