Camping is a perfect summer activity, a great way to connect with nature and spend time with your family. Statistics show that 40.5 million people aged six years old camp at least once in a year. There is no doubt then that camping is one of the most relaxing activities. When you forget to bring extra toilet paper, batteries, and bug sprays, however, things could quickly go haywire. Worse, if there are kids tagging along. Before pitching a tent in the woods with your kiddos, check these tips for hints on how to keep things interesting, fun, and safe for everyone.
Make organization easy
It is vital to organize your supplies before leaving home. Imagine this. Do you want to spend your half-day rampaging through items looking for your toothpaste instead of using that time having fun with the family? Get clear tubs and label them. Categorize your items according to where you plan to use them, or the time of day you will need them. For instance, you can put in one container all the toys and books. For clothes, you can pack them according to the time of day they will be used.
Orient your family to make it a habit to return a specific item to its proper tub. This way, it will be easy for other family members to look for it. Make sure, too, your kitchen tabs, especially those with food, remain clean to prevent diseases and food poisoning.
