A trip down the road of yesteryear is such a novelty for most kids these days. Rare is the moment when most children are not surrounded by modern gadgets seeped in technology. But if you are looking for a bit of fun for an afternoon project with your children, look no further than the old fashioned feather quill pen.
All you need is:
- A medium sized feather. This is even more fun if you have happened upon it while on a nature walk rather than buying one at a craft store, though a craft store will likely have a nice selection of various sized feathers.
- An X-acto knife.
- India ink
Then simply cut the bottom of the feather quill at an angle and make a small slit in the angled cut. Dab the feather in ink, blot it on a paper towel and start writing.
