I’ve been wanting to write this, “Camping with Kids Activities & Crafts” article for years now but I’ve never gotten around to it until now.
Here are ways to have fun with your kids while camping. Though I must be honest with you, my kids don’t really need activities to have fun in the wild. But if this is your first time camping or you really haven’t done it much and feel like you need to ease into camping with some pre-planned activities these have worked wonderfully with my boys and their friends.
