fI popped our favorite microwave popcorn before we left the house, then filled these cute polka dotted treat bags, once we got to the lake. I set the easy to grab snack bags inside of a wired basket, to give it a more outdoors-y feel.
My family loves to munch on trail mix, all year long. For a little added fun to our normal snack of choice, I had the campers create their own trail mix! I included peanuts, raisins, and M&M’s. I displayed the trail mix ingredients inside small pails, and placed them inside of a wooden box. I set out a scoop, and mini snack cups for the guests to fill to their liking! I found a fun camping themed printable set from Printabelle, and added them to our trail mix bar.
I also made sure our campers had a chance to experience S’mores – a Summer Campout staple! While the guests were playing near the lake, I set out bottles of juice, little cups of “fish” crackers, and put together mini S’mores kits. The graham crackers, Jet-Puffed marshmallows, and mini Hershey’s bars were displayed inside of berry baskets.
I made sure I had a supply of ready-made S’mores on sticks, for our hungry & adventurous campers. I also included a sign for our S’mores station.
Our Summer Campout party ended with the happy campers “roasting” their marshmallows. I decided it would be best to save the real campfire for our family trip. Either way, our little camper guests had a great time pretending to roast their mallows over an open flame.
I’d love to hear about your Summer Campout stories! What are some of the fun activities you include?
