CAMP OUT AND MAKE MEMORIES
Camping in the backyard is a fantastic way of enjoying the great outdoors without having to lug all the gear into the car. All it takes is a little imagination to make a fun campsite, and when you do you will be creating memories as well. According to South University, making family outings a regular activity will help your child perform better in school and strengthen the emotional bond between you, your spouse, and your children.
1. PITCH A TENT
Don’t run out and buy a top-of-the-line tent when a simple and less expensive one might meet all your needs. Make sure you set up camp as a family so that your children learn the importance of teamwork.
2. HAVE A BONFIRE
Sitting around a campfire is one of the best parts of camping. If you have a fire pit in your backyard then you are one step ahead of the game.
3. PLAN A CAMPING MENU
Another highlight of camping is roasting food in the flames. You can put together some sausages or even chocolate, marshmallows, and sweet biscuits to make s’mores. You can also put a cast iron pan on the fire and make grilled cheese or nachos for dinner.
4. STAR GAZING
Depending on where you live in the world, looking up at the star-peppered sky is always priceless. As the darkness in the sky takes over you can try to identify constellations common to your area.
