Oh How We Love to Go Camping

Camping!
One of our favorite themes is camping! I guess we all have some of that natural desire to be outside in nature :)


We searched for new activities this year and found some ideas on other blogs. We will post the links with the pictures.

 


One of our most favorite camping books.  When We Go Camping by Margriet Ruurs and paintings by Andrew Kiss.  Beautiful pictures with a great story about a camping experience.

                                 Our Camp site

Our Campsite! Includes sleeping bags, tent, pillows, blocks for the campfire, pretend camping food and cooking gear, chairs, coon hat and stuffed skunk. 

Important Extras! Fishing pole, flashlight, magnifying glass, binoculars, and fan!
