Making a shelter on the ground using natural materials.
This activity can be very fun, and is great to do with friends. All you need is lots of branches and trees and your imagination!
Start by leaning a few large sticks vertically against a tree- the wider they are spread out and taller they are from the tree, the bigger the fort will be. These branches are your foundation. Next, find some smaller sticks and start building up from the ground, having those sticks lean up against the foundation sticks horizontally. When the fort is completely covers in sticks, you can pile leaves on top of it, and depending how thick you make it, it can resist snow, and maybe even rain! There are many different things you can do to make the fort stronger, or taller, or wider. If you find a low branch (about 3-5 feet up, you can lean the foundation sticks against that to make an excellent, very strong fort. That can take hours to weeks, so be prepared to commit.
He had "many" spelled "amny", as a little typo. I fixed it.
