Because we are a family that loves being outdoors, it is probably no surprise we love to go camping. We are lucky to have the Great Smoky Mountains practically in our back yard. We are privy to a huge number of campgrounds with lush greenery, babbling brooks, river rapids, and of course, the majestic mountains. We have seen breathtaking waterfalls, caught some mega big fish (I mean, these suckers were a mile long at the very least lol) and told some awesome ghost stories. When the kids have had their fill of exploring the area around us, have played tag, caught a fish or two and splashed in the water, they are bored. I have begun taking things with us that will keep them interested for the weekend. One of my latest and I must say, best finds were some cool toys to make camping fun for kids from Educational Insights.
How To Make Camping Fun For Kids
Not only are my kids adventurous, they also love to learn. Because we homeschool Henry, any chance I get to teach him and make it fun, I grab it! When we were talking about out next camping trip, the kids said they wanted to get a telescope. I thought if I was interested in how to making camping fun for kids, that was a great suggestion. I looked and those suckers can be pricey! When I saw the adorable Moonscope ($49.99) from the Nancy B’s Science Club line offered at Educational Insights, it was perfect! You can use your Moonscope for looking at the moon or stars, the clouds, mountains, or anything that catches your eye. The possibilities really are endless. The Moonscrop folds easily for travel, is very well constructed and comes with The Sky Gazer’s Journal, which has activities and lots of cool facts. This is definitely an item the kids will get a lot of use from and will not get easily bored with.
We were also sent the Nancy B AquaScope ($34.99) for looking at all kinds of plants and underwater creatures. It can magnify objects up to 5 times larger and with the built in LED lights, you get an even better look at the tiniest of critters. The AquaScope also comes with a thermometer stip and and activity journal that has a lot of really fun science experiments the kids can do. To round off the trio of product we received, we also got the Binoculars and Wildlife Journal ($15.99) , which Caitlin absolutely loves. We have an abandoned house across the street and you can see her over there often with the binoculars and her journal close by. She has seen a lot of birds, lizards, feral cats and other animals, insects and reptiles. These are also fun for the kids to use while in the car to watch the passing scenery. We are in love with the fun and education products from Nancy B’s Science Club and our favorite go to place, Educational Insights.
