We all know the basics we love about camping: sleeping under the stars, being out in nature, fresh air, campfires & more! But we want to think outside the box and make camping a little more fun! Here are some great ideas to do it.
Fire fun ideas: *Make your fire flames different colors!
*Paint supplies to paint the flames the kids see! *Hide an animal mask in your luggage - scare people or have him be the photo-bomber in all your pictures of trip! (or like us, pick a poor soul and see how many times you can scare them, make sure they are a best friend for life first :) )
Camping Game ideas: Go find it! Toasted or Roasted Portable Corn Hole
Camping fun Accessories:
*Binoculars *Walkie Talkies - especially fun when camping with friends :) *Flashlights (great for night hikes or around the campfire scavenger hunts! See why EverBrite is our favorite here!) *Kids active, waterproof camera - get the kids involved and let them take pictures too! *Bird Whistles
*Bird Identifier *Tree Identifier Extra Tips: *Chat Together about your day and adventures during your campfire. What was their favorite part, what was their least favorite. Why was this? etc. Have them chat about it then journal and date it in something like this! Now you have the memories logged for life :)
*Helping is fun! As they get older be sure and include them in the process. Don't just let them sit back and watch you start the fire -s how them how! Don't just let them eat the food- make sure they help make it! This is not only the fun of camping- it's also great life lessons! More ideas? Share below!
