We are going camping this coming weekend and I've been trying to come up with a few activities to keep my kiddos busy while we are there. Has anyone here had a successful camping trip with a 4/5 yr old?  What activities would you recommend we do?

Oh, you could also pick them up a composition notebook or sketchpad and do a field journal, have them draw pictures or write observations in during the car ride and any hikes or walks you take, take pictures and leaves spaces for when you get back home and you can print out the pictures and glue them in.

We used to do a lot of camping with my ODD and we grew up camping when I was little.  We did a lot of bike riding around the campsites, swimming at the lake, exploring for different bugs, flowers and plants that we didn't normally see at our house.  We always took a deck or two of cards and a tin of dominos to play together at the campsite.  Have a great time!!
