Want to go on a camping trip without leaving your house? You can turn an ordinary room into a land of adventure with a little imagination, and a few yummy ingredients—such as JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars, & HONEY MAID Graham Crackers purchased from Dollar General!
Since we’ve been spending more time at home, I’ve been trying to think of fun, indoor activities to keep my kids entertained. Indoor camping seemed like the perfect idea, because it’s a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy! Plus, it can be done any time of the year, regardless of the weather!
To prepare for our camping trip, I headed to Dollar General to pick up everything that I needed. Dollar General is one of my favorite places to shop because it’s conveniently located within 5 minutes of my home, and they have the best deals! Click HERE to learn more!
Here’s What You’ll Need to Set Up the Ultimate Indoor Camping Experience:
· JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
· HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars
· HONEY MAID Graham Crackers
· A cloth tent, or a large cloth that you can drape over a few chairs
· Comfy blankets and pillows
· Lights or candles
· Toasting sticks (skewers, chopsticks, forks)
Since our living room has a large open area, we decided to set up our campsite there. We started by putting together the tent. You can definitely make your own tent by draping a large blanket over a few chairs, but since we already had this cute little tent, I thought this would be perfect!
When camping indoors, comfy accessories are a MUST! You can choose to add beanbag chairs, pillows, blankets, or stuffed animals—it’s completely up to you! Our space was so cozy that our dog, Khloe, decided to snuggle up and join the fun lol!
Once you’ve got your campsite set up, it’s time to make s’mores! S’mores are seriously the best thing about any camping trip! They are the epitome of yumminess! My husband turned on the fireplace, and we made our s’mores by roasting the JET-PUFFED Marshmallows in the fire. Then, we put those in between 2 HONEY MAID Graham Crackers with a piece of HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate. I ONLY suggest letting an adult help with this.
Another option would be to make the s’mores in the microwave. Simply place 1 HONEY MAID Graham Cracker on a paper towel and top with chocolate and a marshmallow. Microwave on high for about 15 seconds or until the marshmallow puffs. Remove from the microwave and cover with the other HONEY MAID Graham Cracker, then enjoy!
Once we finished our s’mores, we played a few games. Games such as Ring toss and bean bag toss are perfect for an indoor camping trip. They don’t require any assembly, and there are no sharp objects involved. The boys and I had a blast playing these games!
Indoor camping is a great way to have fun with your kids, make memories, and connect with them by talking and playing together. As long as you have a little imagination and a lot of s’mores, your camping trip will be filled with tons of fun!
