Time To Plan Your Indoor Camping Night

The first thing you’re going to need to do when planning your indoor camping night or weekend is to pack your bags. If you’re doing this activity with your children, it will make the experience seem more real to them, and it will become even more fun. Get them to pack a change of clothes and a pair of pajamas as you prepare for your “holiday.” 

If you don’t have actual camping backpacks that you would use, get inventive, and use your standard backpacks. You could find some rope and tie on items to make it seem more like the real deal. You can add on your sleeping bag and even some tin mugs. You could write out a list of items your children will need so that they can find them and packing them.
