I’ve been wanting to write this, “Camping with Kids Activities & Crafts” article for years now but I’ve never gotten around to it.
Here are some fun ways to have 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 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.
Painting Walking Sticks
Painting walking sticks was a HUGE hit even the big kids enjoyed this activity. You can find the details to our walking sticks post here.
Nature Scavenger Hunt
I just updated our scavenger hunt to include more items! Download our Nature Scavenger Hunt Printable for Free!!
Rock Tic Tac Toe
This is another simple craft using nature!
Campfire S’mores in a Cone get all the details here.
This is an edible activity that the kids will love if they like s’mores. It’s really easy to assemble and not as messy!
Painting leaves was another one of my favorite and easy activities to do while camping.
Nature Color Hunt – Get all the details here for this fun activity. It was by far one of my favorite family activities.
Around the Campfire Activities
- Sing! Bring a guitar or just sing acapella old campfire favorites or silly songs from your childhood.
- Tell scary stories or just fun stories from your childhood.
I will be sharing more activities and games later this week while they are still fresh on my mind.
