Why fire? Because children have a natural and inborn fascination of fire, its culturally relevant, it is one of the earth's natural elements, every celebration or festivity includes an element of fire, it is magical and creates a sense of well-being, it provides heat, light, a means to cooking or melting and being creative, it's FUN, it's risky and can be very dangerous if children and adults lack the knowledge and understanding of fire.
Still unsure? Our fire steel and fire laboratory come with comprehensive benefit risk assessments to allow adults to introduce fire in a way that that children develop the knowledge and respect of fire and not develop crippling fear or anxiety.
