Today I spent an hour with my son playing "the zombies have attacked!" We 'patrolled' down the back yard, staggered. We practice hand signals for stop, go left and look, etc. During our patrol I 'spotted a zombie' apple near our firing berm. I dispatched it with two shots of HP 9mm. We moved on to the deer blind where we made camp. We learned how to climb the pole into the blind, to ensure safety of firearms (and the hatchet my son decided was a must-have for a zombie apocalypse). During the night - 3hrs on, 3 off (guard duty) - which lasted about 9 minutes, in 'real time' - zombies approached so I tossed out a can of gas (bottle of water). My son pegged it with the Buckmark which turned into an imagination-fueled wall of fire. We sat up there watching live real deer run below; shared a Chili with Beans and Beef MRE, (his first); then 'cleared the house' moving room to room once we 'found this abandoned homesite' (thank you 57th MP Co, for teaching me room-clearing stuff). All-in-all It was a very fun couple of hours with my 9 year old. Do any of you have other tips to make learning something he may not realize he's doing?
