Family Campout

You’re invited to set up a cozy campsite in your living room or backyard.

⛺️ Set up a tent or a blanket fort in your living room or your backyard!

🌙 Make it super cozy! Load up your campsite with lots of pillows, blankets, and sleeping bags.

🐻 Invite some animal friends to join you, whether it’s a pet or a stuffed bear or marmot!

🔥 Find a virtual campfire online to play in the background, or ask your parents to get a fireplace or fire pit going, if you have one at home!

🍫 Make some yummy snacks! Did you know you can make s’mores at home in your kitchen? Place each marshmallow on half of a graham cracker. Put these on a sheet tray and stick them in the oven on broil for just a minute or two, until the marshmallow is toasted. Be sure to keep a close eye on them! Add some chocolate at the very end, just long enough to melt it. Then enjoy some gooey, homemade s’mores!

✏️ Bring your favorite books, games, and art activities to camp with you!  Using paper or a journal, sketch flowers, trees or other things you see in your yard.

🏃Go on a scavenger hunt.  

📷 Share your photos of your campsite, snacks, artwork, and animal friends with us in the comments!
