It’s the middle of winter and your kids are probably starting to feel a little cooped up in the house. This weekend, pretend like it’s summer again and plan an indoor camping trip, s’mores and all!

Setting up Camp

Whether you choose to set up camp in your living room or bedroom, make sure to pack sleeping bags, flashlights, and maybe even a tent. If you don’t have a tent, build a fort out of blankets and sheets.

Campfire Activities

Story time is essential to all camping trips. Read your kids’ favorite books, or maybe even tell of few stories of your own. Kids love to hear stories about their parents when they were kids.

Pull out Monopoly, Scrabble, or another board game your family loves. Make sure to play inside your tent!

The great thing about indoor camping is that you can cheat a little. Pop in a movie, or maybe even have a family competition with your Wii, Rock Band, or another video game.
