Fire Wood Cutting

We love having dinner outside on our choofer. Mind you we don’t get to use it enough! Maybe once or twice a week, really we should trying cooking on it more often! Especially being winter time.

Fire Wood Cutting

We discovered that we now have one son who is so good at cutting up the wood for the choofer……..

He is now in charge of cutting up all of our wood! He cut each block in half and then in half again. Even though his brothers tried, Kyle was able to spilt more wood than any of them!

Maybe we have a champion wood-cutter in our family?

Do You Let Your Kids Help With Cutting Wood?

    I would let them help yes. I’m not really of the school of thought that kids shouldn’t be allowed anything sharp or dangerous, ever. I think that they can learn responsibility quite young and can be sensible if we give them enough guided practice…. Would absolutely love one day to be able to have a wood fire or fire pit to be able toast things over and snuggle up round!

      We let our boys try things out ~ mind you we keep a good eye on them when they are near the fire as its too hot to muck around with. Our boys are into a lot of whatever David is doing with his tools πŸ™‚

      Now that would be so cool – knowing a champion woodchopper! Will have to let our son Kyle know ~ he would love to start entering competitions already!

      I rekcon they are amazing with what they can cut, especially under pressure!

    Oh so you call that a choofer! What a great kid you have.. Yes. I’d allow my kids to experiment and be risky. Experience is learning.

    Hi Lisa,

    In our family, the kids or the younger ones usually (must) help out the elders in any way they can. I think it’s a good way to teach kids about helping and being responsible while having fun or bonding with the family.

    Good to hear that! If I have a grown up kid at home, I would also do the same.
    It’s nice to see them know some stuff like that!
