This past weekend, we celebrated the 4th of July with fireworks and a good ole’ fashion campout in the backyard! The girls were so excited for it! Here’s how we made extra fun, without going overboard.
1. Kid-friendly Foods
What’s great about backyard campouts is that you don’t necessarily need a campfire or even a grill, AND you have easy access to your home. We like to have some easy snacks on hand , keep dinner simple with hot dogs, chips, and fruit. Since we don’t have an actual campfire for s’mores, this delicious S’mores Pizza on the grill is perfect for everyone!
2. Spooky Stories
It’s not camping without some scary stories…right?! For little ones, keep it more “spooky” than scary with a lit up tent. Energizer® area lanterns are the safe, reliable way to provide bright 360° light long into the night or around the camp fire. Have the older kids create a story with their imagination, or choose a fun book from the library.
3. Cozy Sleep Area
Load your tent up with lots of blankets and pillows, stuffed animals, and make sure everyone has on comfy pajamas (warm ones especially if it cools down a lot at night)!
4. Night Time Games
There’s nothing like a fun game of flashlight tag with your friends (or sisters in this case)! The Energizer® headlight was absolutely perfect for this.
Not only is the headlight great for games, it’s actually quite versatile AND water resistant with pivoting functionality to direct light where you need it. Whether you’re camping under the stars or playing in the backyard, Energizer’s high performance headlights are just what you need for summertime adventures that require two hands.
When you’re preparing for your summertime adventures, don’t forget the batteries! Energizer® EcoAdvanced™ batteries are the world’s first AA and AAA battery made with four percent recycled batteries.
