When you need adventure so bad in your life but you are 'stuck' at home many people have turned their backyard into a campsite! We are here to share with you this idea but some extras to make your time a little extra special!
First of all and of course, check your weather! You don't want the tent to end up in your neighbors yard :) Also, this will help with your campfire blowing into others windows as well- always good to be cautious of those around you.
Have your kids set up the tent with you. My girls feel so accomplished when they 'help' (even if it's not very helpful) and can then feel like it's their own campsite!
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:

Time to be an artist - paint something that you see! Bring out a canvas, brushes and paint... paint something you see. Maybe the fire or maybe even someone roasting a marshmallow over it. The ideas are endless.. the art pieces are one of a kind :)
Hide an animal mask in your luggage - scare people or have him be the photo-bomber in all your pictures of the camping night! (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 :)
