Backyard Camping

Materials

  • Tent
  • Sleeping bags
  • Pillows
  • Flashlight
  • Snack

Directions

  1. You don't have to go far to give your preschooler the outdoor experience.
  2. On a fine summer night, set up your tent in the backyard.
  3. For children, there is something almost magical about walking in the dark, so go for a walk: listen to night noises and look at stars.
  4. If a backyard bonfire is not allowed in your neighborhood, have a snack and a sing-along by the light of a flashlight before you pile into your sleeping bags for the night.
  5. If your child is too scared to spend a whole night outdoors, limit the activity to the walk, and then pile into the house for hot cocoa.
