Making a campfire
Without a campfire, camping can never be fun. Children love campfire although it can be dangerous to them, but with proper supervision and attention to the fire, the whole family can sit around the campfire and be memorized by the flames. You can increase the fun by roasting hotdogs and you will surely enjoy the way dancing flames bring the attraction between your family. Bring good medicine for hangover in case you plan on drinking.
Fishing is a great and fun activity especially if you are near a river, pond or lake. Although kids under the age of 12 do need a fishing license, it’s important to ensure you and the entire family has the correct license for the state you are camping. You can make the camping an unforgettable moment for your kid by teaching them how to fish and even playing a betting game of who catch the most or biggest fish.
Kids love to hear stories of when you were growing up. Come up with stories of your outdoor adventures or your earlier camping. The fun thing about storytelling is that, once you introduce a story everyone joins in and starts telling their memories too.
When it’s too hot or raining for hiking, playing dice or any other game is a perfect way to pass time. For more active fun, Uno is a fun card game that is easy for kids to understand and also fun for adults. You can also bring items like baseball and gloves or football and toss between the members of the family for hours in order to pass time.
Watch cloud or looking at some stars
