Camping


Become one with nature. Grab the bug spray, pitch a tent, and tell ghost stories while sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows. If a weekend getaway to a campground isn't possible, have your own family camping night in the backyard. Ask your children to identify the different animal and insect noises, or collect backyard materials for a special project. Although building a fire may not be recommended, you can grill hot dogs and tell spooky stories by the glow of a flashlight or portable lantern. At bedtime, hunker down in sleeping bags under the stars, or set up a tent. It's amazing how your own yard can be transformed into a nature wonderland at night!
