We’re using this street-view-style exploration tool of America’s most remarkable trails as our guide to an adventurous family fun night. C’mon, we’ll show you the way!
Few things work to bring family together like a common goal and an adventure. Start your family fun night by exploring Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and Great Smoky Mountains parks.
All that planning will certainly work up an appetite, and we’ve got just the thing! It’s no secret that the more say kids have in dinner and the more hands-on they get to be, the more they enjoy themselves.
Letting kids lend a hand is also a smart way to introduce new foods (we’re looking at you, vegetables).
Enter foil packs. A longtime favorite around the campfire, tinfoil packets are easy to make, fun to customize and a breeze to clean up.
- To get started, set out a variety of meats, vegetables, herbs, spices, tin foil and olive oil.
- Let everyone create their own meal in the center of a greased 12x18-inch piece of heavy duty aluminum.
- Next, fold over and seal edges making sure to allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
- Finally, grill packets 4 to 6 inches from medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once.
