Memorial Day weekend is traditionally a camping weekend for some families. Although you may not be able to go camping at your favorite spot, try camping at home in your living room or backyard!
|Pitch a tent in your living room, or better yet, make a tent using chairs turned outward and a blanket or sheet. Or, put a sheet over a table. Add some pillows and blankets or a sleeping bag. To be extra fancy, string up some white lights. Create a river next to your tent with blue towels or paper. Make it curve around a stone or two!|
|Make a pretend fire with a pool noodle and tissue paper! Cut the pool noodle into 4 sections. Cover each noodle with brown construction paper including the ends. Place the 4 "logs" in a box. Add yellow, red, and orange tissue paper for the fire.|
What are some activities you can do? Read a book using a flashlight. Tell scary stories or ghost stories. Play charades, cards, or board games. Make popcorn, hot chocolate, or s'mores.
If you have a backyard, pitch a tent! Add some chairs and lantern. Make dinner on a grill, do star gazing, and have breakfast on the lawn with a checkered tablecloth!
Have a family fun adventure!
