Printable camping activities for the campground
It’s a smart idea to head to the campground with a few activities and games in mind. It’s also handy to have something quiet that early risers can do in the morning or for the late afternoon crankies arrive.
I am not that camping mom that packs tubs of toys and games, but I do like to have one or two surprise activities hidden just in case. (Oh, and if you are that family that loves pre-planned activities and such, you’ll want to take a few minutes to check out this list of awesome camping games.)
Take a few minutes to print these out and have a few on hand:
These are absolutely the best activity for camping with kids!
Grab these camping scavenger hunts for a fun family activity at the campsite. One of these is an extensive detailed scavenger hunt perfect for family groups with various ages. And the other is for helping younger kids get acquainted with the campsite so they and you will know where everything is located.
Scavenger hunts are a fun way to get kids comfortable exploring and using their investigation skills. Have these outdoor hunts on hand when the kids are needing something to keep them busy around the campsite. Hunt around with them or pour yourself a cup and sit and watch! (Some of these items might be a bit tricky depending where you’re camping). For some added fun make some toilet-paper binoculars (or let them use a real pair) for their exploring!
Use this camping reading challenge to get kids looking at books on those summer camping trips.
And, if you’re looking for camping reads for the little kids, you might want to check out this list of great hiking and adventure picture books.
These woodland themed drawing tutorials are great for older kids who enjoying being creative. Maybe these prompts might even encourage them to spend some more time drawing other things they see around the campground, or perhaps encourage a bit of nature journaling too!
What a great way for kids to journal and remember their trip. This printable journal would be particularly useful for a longer camping trip. The before trip activities will also help the kids feel involved in the planning. I could see my kids not wanting to spend a lot of time writing over just one weekend, but on a longer trip where there’s more time to fill I think my kids would really enjoy this.
Need a rainy day activity? Or, maybe something to keep the kids busy while you drive to the campsite? These colour and finds are fun for both the young and older kids.
And here, at Two Kids and a Coupon, you’ll find some printable camping word games. Their word search and word scramble are also perfect activities for the care ride to the campground!
We had a Christmas Themed bingo game just like this and every December our kids love playing it. So, I assume my kids would love this camping themed bingo just as much!
