If you look closely at the ground you can see the thousands of tiny wood shavings my daughter produced over our 4 day camping trip. There were no phone calls to make to friends, no planned activities, no texts to send or receive, no shows to watch. The girl had a knife and an endless supply of wood. She whittled a sword, a serving spoon, 2 paddles for floating on the river, 20 some pairs of chopsticks, and a spatula. She also infected the rest of us with whittling fever.
