4 Ideas To Make Your Camping Trip A Success

Camping is a great getaway for anyone to enjoy. It’s a time to soak up nature and escape from your normal routine. Even though it’s a fun adventure, you still need a plan otherwise your trip may include complications. Think about what you want to pack and prepare your gear ahead of time.
It’s easy to forget the most important items when you’re rushing around, or you failed to plan in advance. Make a list of what you think would make the trip more enjoyable and narrow it down based on the amount of space you have for packing. See four ideas to make your camping trip a success.
Pick A Fun Location
Start by being selective about where you camp. Get input from the entire family and recommendations from your friends. You want to make sure you’re in an area that’s great for camping and also safe. Consider how far you want to drive and how many days you’ll be away. Decide if you like to be around people or more on your own. The location will have a big influence over how good of a time you have, so put in the effort it takes to research sites, and so you can confirm you’ve picked the perfect spot.
Play A Camping Scavenger Hunt Game
Come up with a big list of items and images you want to challenge everyone to find once you’re at the camping location. A scavenger hunt is a fun way to fill the time and move around on your feet. Organize yourselves into teams and then disperse to find all of the different objects. It’ll have everyone laughing and enjoying themselves in no time at all. Decide how long you want everyone to look and come up with a prize for the winners. Be careful not to let it get too dark if you’re playing the game in the evening.
Bring A Flashlight
One item you don’t want to forget to pack is a flashlight. Pick up a tac light and use it for getting around at night and reading. The flashlights are tough, reliable, and ultra-bright. They’ll be perfect for maneuvering around your campsite. It’s a great investment for trips out in the wilderness. Another idea is to configure solar-powered lights in the vicinity of your camping area. Stick them in the ground and use them to outline your specific location. You won’t regret having several lighting options when nighttime hits on your trip.  
Roast Marshmallows
Start a campfire and roast marshmallows. Bring all of the fixings for s’mores and enjoy a sweet treat before you go to bed. Sit around the fire and appreciate the warmth and beautiful glow, or sing songs as you work on your snacks. It’s a great way to end the evening and enjoy each other’s company.


Camping is a lot more fun when you’re prepared. Make a list before you go to ensure you have the right supplies with you. These are four ideas for how to make your camping trip a success.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
