How to Entertain Your Kids While Camping

DON’T DO IT! Camping is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, slow down and enjoy the great outdoors with your family. Kids can become so accustomed to overstimulation, that they crave it at all times. The wonderful part of camping is it takes away all of that stimulation and replaces it with nature and beauty. We truly believe that the outdoors is a place that can keep kids entertained for hours all on its own, but sometimes they need a little nudge. Here is a list of items or activities that can help inspire their love for nature: 

1. Nature Challenges

The Texas Adventure Guide is a great tool for families who want to make their camping trip with kids even more engaging and educational. With its Texas-themed learning and activities, and 50 fun nature challenges, the Adventure Guide let’s kids entertain themselves and learn at the same time. Plus, with the ability to document experiences, families can create lasting memories and share their adventures with others.

2. Make S'mores

Making s'mores is a classic camping activity that kids love. All you need is graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. You can even get creative and try different types of chocolate, such as Reese's or Kit Kats.

3. Star Gazing

Texas has some of the clearest skies in the country, making it the perfect place for star gazing. Bring a star chart or download a stargazing app to help identify constellations and planets.

4. Storytelling

Camping is the perfect setting for storytelling. Gather around the campfire and take turns telling spooky stories or sharing family memories. You can even create a campfire skit or play for the kids to perform.

5. Arts and Crafts

Arts and crafts are a great way to keep kids entertained while camping. You can bring supplies for drawing, painting, or even making friendship bracelets. Campy offers a coloring table cloth perfect for the camping picnic tables at most sites. It’s washable and reusable for your next trip when you use washable markers.

Camping with kids can be a lot of fun if you give them the freedom to play and entertain themselves. These tips and ideas will help your kids stay unplugged and make lasting memories. Remember to slow life down and enjoy the outdoors!
