Our five year old, Alfie, came home from school today and announced he needed to use the computer. After much confusion over what he wanted to do on it, on account of him not really having a clue what a computer does, we established that he wanted to type something. So I set him up on my laptop, showed him the space bar and delete button and then shut myself in another room with the younger two so he could get on with it.
He wanted to type up instructions on safe use of a bushcraft knife for other children.
Translated, the above screen shot reads “Put your elbows on your knees. Don’t mess around with a knife.”
He wanted to also add, “always have your first aid kit and hold the knife properly” but alas, what you see took him about an hour and fifteen minutes so he’ll have to add the rest over the weekend.
Rosa says He almost got it right! Very good instruction Alf! Whao 2 months to go? How did that happen?
Was thinking about you earlier Ms Ballard – come over soon! X
