Donít have a tent, or even a backyard for that matter? Thatís no reason not to camp out. Just spread out your sleeping bags, or even just some blanket in living room. Turn off TV, radio and video games. If you have a fireplace, build a fire. Otherwise, order some pizza and pop some popcorn and you can even make símores in microwave.
No matter where you decide to have your close to home camping trip, take some time to sit together and talk. Telling stories, whether a campfire is involved or not, is always fun. Your kidsí imagination in creating new stories may surprise you. Donít forget to tell some handed down family tales.
Above all, think back about your favorite camping memories and recreate them with your kids. Do you remember any good scary stories? Are there any games you enjoyed playing? Whatís your favorite card game?
Have some fun with this, enjoy your kids and create some memories.
