|2 year old McKenna getting the most out of camping|
Everyone lives in different climates with different camping experiences. Some are on the beach, some in sand dunes, some in brush, and some in forests. Because of that, I can't tell you precisely what to do to get the most out of the experience, just some generalities.
Be sure to go for little walks or hikes if you are up to it. Notice the vegetation. Look at the flowers if there are any. What kinds of trees, grasses, and bushes grow there? How does it compare to home?
What about animal life? Do you see footprints or nesting beds? Do you see animals?
What do you hear? What are all of the unique sounds around you?
What smells do you notice?
What is the texture of the rocks, plants, ground, etc.?
Camping teaches so much in such a short time, and teaches children things faster than they can learn looking at picture books. I highly encourage you to make the effort for a camping trip!
