You are taking a deep breath of fresh woodsy air.
No TV. No Wifi.
Just the fresh air and your imagination……
Here are a few things we did this past trip that can keep your kiddos entertained while camping!
Scavenger Hunt! Click Here for print out.
Nature Bracelets! Duct tape wrapped with the sticky side facing out. This one can keep the kids entertained for hours – it’s also pretty fun for adults too!
Make a “Love Catcher”. We made a few and decorated our whole campsite.
This is a simple & easy craft. Gather a few short sticks, bring colored string, scissors, and stickers. This can be tweeked for any holiday.
Just buy different colored/themed string and stickers.
(Green for St Patricks, White & Pastels for Easter, Red&Green for Christmas, ect.)
Near to naptime, snuggle by the fire.
Collect pine cones
Lay in the sunshine and go cloud gazing
Go for a walk!
You can walk around and meet the other campers.
People are usually quite friendly on camp grounds. (at least in my experience)
Practice your handstands!
(Ok maybe only Daisy & I do this sorta thing.)
I can’t express enough how important time together as a family – away from screens. Kids need eye contact and attention more than we realize. They seem to crave that stability of a family setting. As we were driving through the safari, there were herds of wildebeests and kulans. My daughter saw them and said, “Look! A family!”
It was precious & I want to remember that forever.
Love the ones around you that God has given you to love.
