Fun Camping Recipes for Kids
Tacos in a Bag – another fun and easy camping recipe for kids that they can make themselves – with just a little adult supervision.
This camp lunch, or light dinner, is so fun and easy the kids will want to do it on every camping trip.
A quick camp meal with almost no clean-up, that your kids will be talking about long after the camping trip is over.
Dump, crunch, and shake
Just watch the fun as the kids dump in their ingredients, crunch, scrunch, and shake to mix, and then dig in. All you need to do is make sure they don’t get carried away with the crunching and shaking. This easy recipe for kids isn’t just delicious – it’s fun too.
The concept is so simple. Each camper spoons the ingredients they want into their individual bags of chips. Then they just scrunch them a little to mix things up – and they’re done! Eat with a plastic fork or spoon and toss everything in the trash for easy clean-up.
A little prep at home can make this a no-cook, fast and easy camp meal. Just cook the hamburger/taco seasoning mix at home, and bring to camp in a gallon-size Ziploc. (can be served cold at camp, or warmed in a skillet) The vegetable slicing and dicing can also be done at home, and brought to camp in Ziplocs. Then it’s just a matter of putting things out for the kids to use.

They are versatile – you can make anything from grilled cheese sandwiches to instant fruit pies. And they are so safe and easy to use that you can let your young campers make their own fun camping recipes for kids.
