Fun camping activities for kids
Make some snacks together
Camping wouldn’t be fun if there was no food. And kids love to eat. So, why not let them help to dish up some snacks for the camping. The whole family can sit together and make some snacks. Try some simple to make snacks with bread, fruits and nuts. Tell the kids to mix up the ingredients. Apples and peanut butter are always a favorite and easy to handle. Get some nice cook drinks ready for kids. Of course, no camping trip is complete without smores! Sure, they’re a little messy, but they make a great treat!
Jump and Crawl
Set up an obstacle course. In the backyard and let the kids leap over or crawl under those obstacle. Tell them to crawl under the patio table or jump over the garden hose. You can also organize races and give a small prize to the winners. These camping activities for kids are great because they help give your children a bit of exercise and tire them out for bedtime.
Get some music on and let every member dance together. This is a great way to gel together and feel comfortable with each other. You can even play some game together while dancing.
Tell Campfire Stories
Another of those favorite camping activities for kids is to listen to stories. Get some story books and tell them a nice story. Better yet, let each one of them tell a story that they make up! Avoid telling ghost stories as it might not be the best of the idea for the younger kids. Try to get them involved in some funny family stories.
Light a campfire
Enjoy a late-night campfire simply conversing, playing games around the fire and munching snacks. Some games can be played around the campfire and one good example is “I Remember” –. You’ll have a lot of laughs and some great moments around the camp fire.
Camping is certainly one of the one of the best activities that a family can plan together. This is the best way to share time together, bond over some great food, stories and games. During these fast paced times, make the most of the little pleasures life offers us and camping with your kids is one of them.
