Camping trips present an excellent way to break free from our hectic routines. Thus, most parents today make camping a family affair that is meant to be enjoyed by everyone. If you are tagging your kids along, you need line up a couple of fun activities to keep them engaged during the trip. This mini vacation also helps them bond and relax together as a family.
Make Some Camping Snacks
To most people, camping is never complete without eating some traditional camping foods. As such, you can roast some bush meat on some camping fire, prepare some campfire-toasted marshmallows, and many other foods you are sure everyone would love. Involving your kids in every part of this process can be very captivating.
Kids love practicing things they see on TV, and a scavenger hunt is one of these. As such, organise a scavenger hunt and ensure they are restricted to a safe vicinity. This hunting activity will sure keep your kids engaged and excited. Also, these hunts also help your kids learn how to decipher clues and at the same time improve their critical thinking abilities.
The tradition of telling campfire stories goes back to man’s discovery of fire itself. After a busy day in the nature trails, the best possible way to end the day is to tell some captivating stories – if possible avoid telling horror stories. Get everyone involved by allowing them to participate in one way or another. Such moments create lasting memories that remain in the hearts of kids.
These are just three among hundreds or even thousands of camping activities for kids. The fun and thrill created by parents depend on how well you plan and roll out these activities. Adding some variations and being creative eliminates monotony, which goes a long way in keeping your kids thrilled by these ‘new’ experiences.
