Birthday Party Camp out
A great and easy birthday party idea for kids. With the summer quickly coming to an end, a camp-out birthday party is fun.
Set up a tent in your backyard with a fire pit somewhere in the vicinity of your tent.
Have the guests bring their sleeping bag, pillow, and warm clothing.
Start the party around early evening (It is up to you if you want to serve dinner (or BBQ)that evening or just partake in the nighttime activities with dessert/and late night snacks) and let the party goers get their stuff settled in the tent.
Start the fire in the fire pit as soon as the sun starts to set. As it gets dark, a great party favor the kids can enjoy during the festivities are glow sticks. They come in a variety of items (stick, necklaces, bracelets, headbands, earrings etc.) so the dark doesn't seem so scary if you have a bit of light with you at all times.
Some activities that are fun around the campfire is the old time favorites of making s'mores. Another is play charades or the telephone game.
Depending on the age of your guests, a good ghost story around the campfire is fun too.
Stay tuned for end of summer activities for all ages.
