Whether inspired by Katniss Everdeen or Daryl Dixon, there's no denying that archery is hot with the kids right now.

If your own children are suddenly trying to construct bows and arrows out of household items and hunt each other down in the living room, here's a suggestion: take Cheyenne Mountain State Park up on its offer of free archery classes. Your kids will get a chance to live their fantasy in a safe environment. And, who knows, maybe archery will turn out to be more than a fad for them if we find ourselves living in a scary post-apocalyptic world.
