As parents we want to be able to show our kids everything that life has to offer. We want them to be able to have fun and to explore the things that they see every day and to truly comprehend it all. That is why many parents will take their kids with them when they go camping. It is a great way to explore nature and to get away from the video games that are
The problem is that sometimes younger kids have a hard time trying to grasp the nature surrounding them and to truly appreciate it. You need to come up with some fun things for them to be able to do. Maybe things that will help them to learn without them feeling like they are still in school or on a field trip.
One of the best things that you could do is try to set up a camp close to a lake. You don’t have to be right next to one – but within walking distance would be great. That way you all will be able to go swimming, boating, or even fishing. It is something fun for them to do and you can do it as a family.
Hiking is great exercise and a great way for the whole family to see the nature and the beauty of the hills. Your kids might even get a chance to see some beautiful scenery or watch some animals from afar. Just make sure that you have sun tan lotion on and bring some snacks and a whole lot of water.
For the much younger kids you should bring along some nature books and coloring pencils. Have them try to trace the leaves and rocks that they find. They could even try to identify the insects they find and the birds that are playing their own music.
Last but not least you should make sure that they feel apart of the whole experience. If they are a bit older make sure that they have their own backpack with their supplies. This includes having them pick out their own kids camping tent and making sure that they set it up. They will love the fact that they can do it on their own.
