Let Them Eat GORP

One of my goals for A Girl’s Guide to the Wild was to create activities that could be completed successfully with as little help or expense from parents as possible. While those kinds of activities serve as great breaks for parents, they also teach a kind of self-reliance and problem solving that kids need in order to thrive.

GORP is a great food to practice things like gathering ingredients, measurement, storage, and cleanup. And it can be as healthy or sweet as you want, making it a solid staple in the pantry or outside.

A recipe for GORP, the ultimate trail mix.
