Camping

Bring in various props to allow the kids to pretend they are camping. Consider:

  • Tents
  • Sleeping bags
  • A homemade campfire (with paper towel tubes as logs and tissue paper for flames)
  • A backpack packed with camping necessities
Possible activities include:
  • Mapping and orienteering with maps and compasses
  • Tape recording nature sounds
  • Fishing with magnets on sticks to pick up “fish” made out of paper and paper clips
  • Making first aid kits
