Are you trying to think of something fun to do with the kids during their holiday break from school? Try camping indoors! It’s something they probably don’t do often and can be a family event. Who knows, maybe it will make it into the list of holiday traditions.
The Tent: You can put up a real tent in the living room or have the kids construct their very own with blankets. You can use cushions for a place to sit and gather around for stories.
The Food: Make something easy and that still carries the camping theme. Try hot dogs, potatoes, and a vegetable. The dinner should be an easy clean up that requires few utensils. Put down a blanket you don’t care too much about so if there are messes, you can toss it in the washer without a worry. For dessert, make s’mores in the kitchen; after all, s’mores are a camping tradition!
The Activites: Having flashlights will be fun for the kids; they can make up a shadow puppet holiday story and share with everyone. Instead of scary stories around a fire, try to gather around one flashlight and have everyone talk about what makes this time of year special to them.
It’s the perfect time to cozy up and eat a few melty s’mores so do something fun with the family this season!
