Pitch a Tent
Set up camp right in the living room – it sounds a little crazy, but go with it. Kids love secret hideouts. Use a tent for the feel of an authentic campout, or get creative and work together to build a blanket fort.
Flip the switch
Make sure everyone is equipped with a flashlight, next turn off the lights, shut down computers, and power off all other electronic devices. Tonight you're 'roughing it' in the name of family fun. Flashlight tag, anyone?
Have S'more Fun
Camping without s'mores isn't really camping, is it? There are a few different ways to achieve a perfectly toasted mallow without ever stepping foot outdoors.
While you won't be able to eat what you catch, this fishing game reels in family fun no matter which way you play it (indoor fishing provides a lot of options).
What you need:
Put it Together:
Serious family indoor campouts require snacks. Totinos® pizza rolls to the rescue! Here's how to make them adventure style:
Hawaiian Pizza Dipping Sauce
Gaze at the Stars:
What is more magical than lying on your back and peering up at the beautiful stars above with your family gathered close? Create that same kind of wonder and excitement for camp headquarters with a star mobile.
What you need:
Just because you can't have an indoor campfire, doesn't mean you can't have sing-a-long! For this one, you may have to break the no electricity rule.
Turn campfire singing into a game of 'who can finish the line'. It's easy and addicting!
Here's how to play: Everyone sits in a circle. The first player picks a song and everyone sings along until the song is stopped by it's picker. Then the person seated to the right must recite the rest of the line. If they do, they get a point. Next it's that player's turn to play a song. Keep going around the circle like this until someone gets to five points.
