June Series on Cheap Summer Fun: It’s S’more Fun Under the Stars! Try Backyard Camping!

Camp In Your Own Backyard!

 

Who doesn’t enjoy sleeping under the stars? Setting up camp in your own backyard is a simple and inexpensive way to have fun with the kids this summer. A few years ago I invited a couple of Anya’s friends over for a campout. I grilled out, made some fruit kabobs, fresh lemonade, threw up a tent and squirted them with the hose. We painted, told stories, and made yummy smores over the fire-pit.

If you don’t own a tent, no worries! Ask to borrow one from a friend or neighbor. Bring board games into the tent and be armed with a few stories to share. If you live in an apartment ask a friend or family member if you can use their backyard and invite them to join in on the fun.

    What a wonderful idea for some summer fun! No doubt the kids loved it and will be a memory your daughter cherishes for a lifetime. My kids are older and out of the house now, but I’ll tuck this idea away for future grandchildren :)
