Safety first! Check the area you are in to make sure you don’t come to any harm when staying in your shelter
Remember to check above you, you don’t want anything to fall on you! Then check the floor, make sure you are not on an animals route or insects nest for instance
Avoid brambles, stingers and other not very nice plants!
What's the best location to pick? If you can find somewhere that offers you a bit of shelter already (and is safe) then make use of it! If not, remember your safety checks and take it from there!
Construction… wood, wood and leaves! Y-shaped sticks will help support your shelter's entrance, find a nice long stick to make your ridge, various sticks to build your sides and lots of leaves will create lots of insulation and protection from the elements
Tips and tricks…
Use three y-shaped sticks to create a sturdy pyramid shape and then add a ridge for a really solid starting frame for your shelter
Alternatively, with the sturdy pyramid shape, you could leave the front open and just insulate the back (see the video for more), then use a fire to help keep you warm
Finally, you can build a group shelter that uses a fire to help keep everyone warm and best of all the techniques to do this are the same as the other shelter ideas above!
Remember, safety first though when building any shelters!
