This weekend we had planned to visit the aquarium with my mom. But, on Friday morning, Natalie was sent home from school with strep throat. We rescheduled the aquarium for another day, and since it was raining, we decided to go camping… inside!

Creating Your Own Indoor Camp Out

School is about to be out for the summer, and I’m always looking for fun activities to keep the girls busy and entertained, so I can get some work done! Indoor camping is sure to do the trick!

STEP 1: Tent

You can get these small two person tents for $17. They are perfect for an indoor camp out since they are small. We set ours up in the living room, but they would also easily fit in a bedroom.


STEP 2: Games

My girls love doing arts and crafts. We made this handprint campfire craft, created our own scavenger hunt, and even made some heartwarming Mother’s Day cards.

STEP 3: Snacks

NEW Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores is a new product, and comes in three delicious flavors:

  • Toasted Marshmallow with Fudge
  • Toasted Marshmallow
  • Chocolate Marshmallow


Perfect summer alternative to the original s’mores – the NEW Nestlé® Drumstick® S’mores bring out all the delicious flavor of s’mores with marshmallow flavored ice cream, and a rich graham cracker, chocolatey coating.


We ended the night with shadow puppets. And even though they got scared and eventually decided not to sleep in the tent, we had a great daytime camp out.
