[quote:Anonymous Coward 1496915:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI2MzEzNzk3XzI1QkU4RjU1] Making a snare The easiest trap to make. Not technical at all. I like the 2nd video since the boy can't be more than 12 that's teaching you. Young teens make great snares, and will improve on their design since they are naturally curious. The spring aspect is very helpful for stunning the rabbit or squirrel. I personally use a heavier sapling since that will jerk them harder, which I think is better. You must check traps often to be humane. It is very cruel to make the animal suffer. They will chew off any limbs caught. You're going to make a circuit of checking the traps, probably twice a day. Trapping is about numbers. It's a probability based upon how many you set, and how often you check them, and how well you bait them with something that makes them curious as bait. The snare will work in any "run" area regardless of bait though, but of course bait will help. A squirrel will naturally be curious, and setting up a log against a tree where known squirrel activity is going on, say an oak with acorns present, will be an excellent place for several snares attached to the log. They'll climb, get snared, and fall off and be suspended. It would be very foolish to make a trap and NOT de-scent your hands. Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap works well. Mint grows everywhere and disguises human scent well.

There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
