*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 :) )
Extra Tips:Journal and Chat: Grab some notepads and pens and sit the family by the fire. Chat about your favorite things you did that day and the best moments. Write it down or document it in a video... You'll have the best time laughing about moments you might have otherwise forgotten!
*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!
