    Actually, when I was a kid, every boy used to carry a lens/magnifying glass with him. and we used to set things on fire as well as look at bugs and leaves at, say 5 times magnification. And sometimes we used to try and make primitive microscopes and/or telescopes by combining two or more, using empty toilet rolls or other tubular shapes etc. Today this has largely fallen by the wayside and i recently read that, in cities at least, three out of four “modern” kids never seem to have climbed a tree!
