If you read my blog on any regular basis you know my love for vintage skills. But we can’t stop at learning and reviving these skills for ourselves. There are vintage skills kids need to learn! They need to learn them for themselves and for the continuation of these lovely life skills for the future. Not only that, these are basic homesteading skills as well.
Vintage Skills Kids Need
You might be like me, a suburbs kid that grew into a love of homesteading and self sufficiency. That’s ok, better to start late than not at all!

It is a lost art my friends.
Maybe you’re asking yourself why we need to teach these vintage skills to kids. It isn’t just so the art of them are lost but our kids deserve to have the ability to care for themselves.
