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.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
