Backyard Camping Adventure

When we adults think of journaling about traveling we normally think of touring another country or visiting another state. If you’re a camper than journaling can encompass nature, animals, New cuisine etc. What if you’re a parent with lots of kids and camping is out of the question? Could you still share that experience with your family in your own backyard?

When you first broach the subject they will be extremely hesitant.(Ours were!) Visions of lost video games and texts dance in their heads. You have a daunting task ahead of you, but you can get them excited about cooking outdoors, Story-telling, glow-in-the-dark games, s’mores, and sleeping in a tent.

The steps to do this are not complicated. To get started, mow your lawn and get rid of ant hills. If you don’t want to invest in a tent, try  tarp and fence posts. Sleeping bags or an air mattress is a no-brainer.

Pack your cooler with foods you can cook outdoors. If you have a grill that is perfect for hot dogs, hamburgers, marshmallows etc.

The fun starts after you eat with spooky stories, flashlight tag, glow-in-the-dark balloons. For some reason, our older children throughout it would be fun to have a hula hoop contest and yes, I did do “a number” on my back!
