As I drafted Theodore Roosevelt for Kids, outdoor activities obviously had to be part of the mix. TR was probably the most "woodsy" of our presidents, so writing up a wood burning activity seemed like a natural. I even experimented on our deck with a piece of firewood, which brought out the kid in me.*
Isn’t that what summer is all about?
*And reminds me of a riddle we learned on the WTTW Chicago science program we watched at Whittier Elementary School:
Q: Why did the old cowman named his new ranch "Focus?"
A: Because that's where the sons raise meat!
