Family Camp Out

Camping doesn’t have to take place in the forest. Popping up the tent in the backyard is a great way to have a convenient vacation. You can even set up camp in your living room. You can even make your own indoor firepit by putting a small fan at the bottom of a large cooking pot with red, yellow and orange streamers taped to it. Or, just take the same color tissue papers to stuff them in the pot for a simpler effect. You might want to add some twinkling holiday lights for some added flare. Just remember to include all the things that you normally would at a campsite: S’mores, flashlights, sleeping bags, bug spray (if you end up outside), etc. To make it complete, sing some of your favorite songs and make up some kid-friendly spooky stories!
