Camping with kids takes more planning..
Tent camping with kids means there is no “down-time” for you unless you make sure you have things for the kids to do to keep them busy.
These camping activities are especially designed for kids. Most are for young campers, 8 and under, but there are also camping activities that work for all age campers, even the pre-teens & teens that are “too old” for kid’s games.
Easy camping activities ideas:
Let them play! These in-camp activity suggestions; like playing cards, blowing bubbles, and others, are things kids can do with just a watchful eye from you.
Scavenger Hunts, Nature’s Bingo, Round-Robin Stories, and more … Hiking and camp activities for kids that do more than just “occupy” them.
This “Bad Weather” Survival kit will help maintain everyone’s sanity when bad weather forces kids, (and you), inside a tent or cabin for long periods of time.
Here are some handy resources and pieces of camp gear you might be interested in:
Don’t laugh – think about it first, a Boy Scout Handbook can be one of the most helpful pieces of general camping gear you can have when you are camping with kids!
It is especially helpful to new campers, but can also be handy and useful to experienced campers as well.
This handbook contains easy to understand answers and how-to’s for almost any camping question or situation. Plus, it contains plant and foliage identifications, campsite activity suggestions, woodcraft project suggestions, (with instructions), knot tying tips and instructions, ( a great fill-in for bad weather situations), survival tips, and detailed primary first aid instructions.
(ps. You would have to buy several of those other “camping with kids books” to even come close to the useful content of a Scout handbook)
