camping ideas!

(this post may contain affiliate links)

I hate camping.   the end.  just kidding (kinda…but I do camp like this: Troop-Halloween

 

 

I love the chance to unplug (even though I come back to 100’s of  emails and waaaaay behind in my bloglovin) and the opportunity to not wear makeup.

 

I just hate being dirty. and squatting.

not.a.fan. But we do it.

cause we are dumb. and we bought an awesome tent.. l_ed46d070-ccad-11e1-8012-3d0106f00007 it literally pops up…and pops down.

 

and I thought I would share some of my most FAVORITE camping ideas!

 

like….. color scavenger hunt...

Fill the bottom of the egg cartons with all different colors and then just hand them out to the kids–the first one to find all the colors win (i WISH i had a picture of it filled up–it was so dang pretty! lots of wildflowers!)

  When I go camping I throw hot dogs on a table…or a cup of noodles…basically anything that doesn’t require dishes! so WALKING TACOS are my favorite!

and we always make tin foil dinners….

(I always precook my chicken and hamburger to make it easy going….

AND i put a wet paper towel in between the layers of the tin foil. keeps everything from getting burned!!!

********

also… a new treat that i made this past camp trip was campfire eclairs!

oh man guys. (manguys?) these were AMAZING!

basically you buy biscuit dough…and your wrap it around the carved end of a stick (you want the stick about 1 inch wide) (we use the handle of our roasting sticks!) but you could use a dowel!

and roast.

and when it’s all brown and not doughy you slide it off the stick…and you squeeze in some pudding and top with frosting (buy it premade…no dishes!)

and eat. oh . heaven.

and while we are on the subject of roasting stuff…have you tried starbursts and tootsie rolls over the campfire!? they are AMAZING.
