Here are a few camping activities that your kids will love:
One of the best things about camping is exploring the great outdoors. Kids can go on hikes, collect leaves and stones, and look for wildlife. If you’re camping near a lake or stream, they can also go fishing or build dams to see how the water flows.
Campfires are another camping staple. Kids can roast marshmallows, tell stories, and sing songs around the fire. Make sure to teach them about fire safety first, though!
Finally, camping is a great opportunity for stargazing. Lie down on a blanket and see how many constellations you can spot. You might even be able to see some shooting stars!
