Indoor Camp-Out

Here's the how-to:

  • Set up your Christmas tree without the lights for a true mountain setting.
  • Use any other mini pine trees you might have. Gather pine cones if you can.
  • If your room is big enough, set up a tent.
  • Or, for sleeping under the stars, get glow-in-the-dark stars for the ceiling.
  • Build a fake fire and set up camping chairs around it.
  • Use an indoor lantern or use candles for light.

  • Make Indoor S'mores using this recipe.
  • Or use an indoor s'more maker like this one.
  • Roast hot dogs over the stove burners. It really works!

  • Go "star gazing." Set up the stars on the ceiling in constellations. Check out a book from the library if you need ideas.
  • Read stories around the camp fire.
  • Play card games using a lantern.
  • Watch Parent Trap, Troop Beverly Hills, or another camping-themed movie.
