Setting Up An Indoor Camping Activity for Kids
Making a DIY Toy Campfire:
The kiddos had a fun time playing in the tent and pretending to hang out at the campfire. We also placed marshmallows on the end of popsicle sticks, so they could pretend to roast them over their fire. The play lasted all evening from after dinner to bedtime, and my son lasted all night sleeping in the tent.
Enjoy your time at home!

We got a kids’ tent from enthusiastic friends and out little buddy wanted to use it for a while, but…you know…not use it 😀 This will be the perfect first step towards actually camping in our lawn one day 🙂
this would be good for adults too for a "I wanna do something different" date night
That is so true! Great idea! Thanks for sharing it.
Love your idea! My daughter & I just made our campfire. 🙂 She is looking forward to camping inside tonight to celebrate the 4th. Happy 4th!
Sounds fun! I hope it was a great time for you both. 🙂

This is so ADORABLE! My daughter would have so much fun with her own indoor campout. Thanks for the inspiration, and thanks for sharing in the Discover and Explore linky.
Thanks for opening up the sharing opportunity. I hope the indoor camping is a great time in your house! My kids love it.
Oh what a fantastic camp fire – and I love how you've given it a glow.
Off to pin.
Thanks so much. It was fun-both of my children really liked that it glowed! Thanks for pinning it to share with others!

Creative and cute. My daughter has been pestering me to have a camp out with her best friend. Maybe something like this would satisfy her (she has a ladybug tent that we sometimes set up in the house).
I hope the idea will help! Sounds like she will enjoy the opportunity.
That sounds like fun!
Janelle, it was! My two really enjoyed it.
