Sleeping Under the Stars

Everyone should have the experience of sleeping outside under the stars at least once in their lifetime. For a camping family this is commonplace, but for some kids it will be an exciting, new adventure.

Summer is the perfect time of the year to experience sleeping outside under the stars in a backyard tent. It is the perfect temperature and less rainy than other times of the year. There is no school or homework to worry about and many parents take more time off from work in the summertime than at any other time of the year.

To have a perfect backyard camping experience you will need:

  • a tent
  • a flashlight
  • air mattresses
  • sleeping bags
  • extra blankets
  • books to read
  • drinks
  • snacks
  • bug spray

Kids will get a big kick out of having a camp out with you, especially if this is new to them or if they are of the younger age group. After doing this once you can be sure that they will be asking to do it again. It will surely be a memorable experience in their lifetime.

Kids will love sleeping outside in their backyard tents with Mom. You might even be able to get Dad to join in on the fun. After all, the more the merrier!
