If you live near Pennsylvania's Lackawanna State Forest and want your kids to learn to use knives responsibly -- an important skill, endangered by scaremongering and helicopter parenting -- you can take them to Sharp Kids, a half-day workshop on knife use for kids aged 8-12. It's $20, knife included.
Sharp Kids is conducting two half-day workshops on Sunday, October 6, 2013 at the Lackawanna State Forest, Manny Gordon Recreation Center, Thornhurst, PA. Classes for responsible girls and boys ages 8-12 will run from 8am-12 pm and from 1- 5 pm. Each class is limited to 20 students/class. The course will cover knife safety, first aid for cuts, basic outdoor knife skills, as well as guide students through several kid-friendly carving projects. Following instruction and completion of a written test on knife safety, each child will be given their own small, fixed-blade knife to use during class and to keep.
