10 Creative Camping Activities to do for Free

The hubbers and I are taking advantage of some of his time off, and going on a little camping trip.  We’re pretty excited!  We are leaving today, so I won’t be on the blog for a bit.  But I’ll be back soon and excited to share new things with you guys!  As I’ve been preparing things for our trip the last couple of days, I’ve thought a lot about the camping trips my family has had in the past.  I have some really special memories of family times from camping trips, and some of those fun memories are from the creative things we came up with while we were there.  I decided to share with you guys a list of creative things to do while camping.  These ideas are great for kids, and most of them would be fun for the whole family.

I did this as a kid and I cherish it now… a child of any age can do this, even if they are just drawing pictures!  Or get them to narrate a few things to you and write it for them.  I’m going to do this on our trip!

Kid’s can collect things and press them while camping.  Then you can make crafts/display what they find later!


My family does this every time we go camping.  This works best if you have some open area around to play.
