Camp Out Party
Let’s Go Camping Deluxe Party Pack
What fun it is to spend a weekend away in the middle of nature, sleeping in a tent and cooking food over an open fire just like the cavemen. Many children love this feeling of self sufficiency and freedom that comes with camping so why not turn that excitement into a birthday party? You don’t have to go away necessarily to have a successful camp out party, all you need is an outdoor area that is wide enough and safe for a pack of children.
Choose an outdoor setting like a park, or even your backyard for this adventurous party. Set up a portable grill so that your food can be served warm and the kids can watch as the flames turn that raw meat into something delectable and irresistible.
If your party location is a little more adventurous than your back yard, have a first aid kit as well as a snake bite kit handy, just in case! Spray all your guests with non deet bug repellent and sunscreen as soon as they arrive. As much as we all like lobsters, we don’t want our kids to look like them at the end of the day.
