    A compass is an extraordinary device to have in the wild and can simply help you on which ever course you need to go. To make a home made compass you need a magnet, some water, a cup,a needle and a bit of foil. First, fill the cup with water then place the needle on the magnet for at least a minute. Next, place the strip of foil on the water that is in the cup so that it is floating. Then take your magnetized needle and position it so that it sits on the top of the floating foil. The needle will need a moment to adjusts, and then you should be able to tell what direction you are going since the needle ought to indicate which direction is north.
