Thinking of ways to bring holiday fun to your kids while at home this summer? Nicole Digiacobbe of TheDigiGirls shares ideas for an indoor camping activity with the family.

We’re all spending more time at home and looking for ways to entertain ourselves and our families. I’ve had to get a bit more creative with activities, but I’ve enjoyed coming up with fun things for our family to do together.

Lately, we’ve been entertaining the idea of camping. So I surprised our daughters with a camp-in night filled with s’mores and other delicious treats from Dylan’s Candy Bar. They were thrilled!

Here are some simple yet fun ideas to perk up the kids’ imagination and give them a magical time:

Set an Outdoorsy Scene
I wanted to bring some real camping elements to life, so I pulled out our Balsam Hill Christmas tree from the attic. One of my favorite things about owning Balsam Hill trees is how easy they are to store—and even easier to set up. Not to mention, how beautiful they look! Our 7.5-feet tall Classic Blue Spruce brings in a touch of nature so it feels like we’re outdoors.

I also set up some cushy pillows from Dylan’s Candy Bar and a plush blanket so the girls could lounge and play comfortably. You can also roll out a sleeping bag to make it closer to the real camping experience.

Add Charming Lights
Once the tree was up and the campsite was set, I laid Easy Wrap LED light strings around the blanket to make it look even more enchanting. You can also hang lights on the wall or string them across the ceiling to resemble a starlit night.

Make the indoor camping experience more fun by creating your own kid-safe campfire. Roll some brown paper bags or cardboard to look like logs. Arrange them as you would a real campfire and place battery-operated LED candles at the center. Enjoy a storytelling session or play board games around the campfire’s warm glow.

Pitch a Tent
We couldn’t go camping without a tent! I used an AirFort Play Tent which is easy and simple to put up because you only need a box fan to inflate it. It’s also worry-free because the fan’s protected by a mesh divider so your little ones are safe. It has no floor for easy entrance and exit and has a viewing window so you can keep watch while they’re inside.

The kids can spend hours playing in the AirFort. Bring in pillows and blankets for a cozy slumber party, or turn it into a mini-movie theater. It can be turned into anything with a bit of imagination.

Prepare Fun Food and Games
What made indoor camping even more memorable was all the fun games and food to be had. Kids love an exciting scavenger hunt, complete with a map, clues, and of course, hidden treasure. Bigger kids may enjoy charades, card games, Pictionary, or bingo.

Serve snacks and treats your kids love. My girls and I enjoyed s’mores and an array of colorful sweets from Dylan’s Candy Bar. They offer over 7,000 confections, so there’s a large selection to choose from. They’ve got desserts to suit every sweet-tooth, from lollipops to sour candies and chocolates.

Looking at the lovely memories we created that night, the camp-in was a success. It’s certainly a fun and easy way to celebrate the spirit of Christmas at any time of the year.

Balsam Hill:
Your Place for Premium Artificial Christmas Trees, Wreaths and Garlands
“Balsam Hill is Home of the Most Realistic Artificial Christmas Trees and Seasonal Home Décor.” — The Doctors

Balsam Hill’s mission is to create the most realistic artificial Christmas trees, Christmas wreaths and Christmas garlands ever produced. More than just a fake Christmas tree, a Balsam Hill Christmas tree achieves its stunningly realistic effect in two ways. First and foremost is Balsam Hill’s method for creating realistic evergreen foliage, True Needle™ technology. Using individually molded bi-colored plastic needles, the True Needle™ method is simply the finest means available for creating realistic artificial Christmas trees. Second, Balsam Hill’s Signature Collection trees are each based on natural evergreen species, providing a gorgeous, true-to-life texture, silhouette and coloring. Your artificial tree becomes the perfect canvas for your favorite Christmas ornaments and Christmas lights.

To make our trees as luxuriously convenient as possible, Balsam Hill offers premium pre-strung lights in clear, multicolored, and our innovative Color+Clear™ which allows the owner to choose clear or multicolored lights with the touch of a remote. Finally, an artificial Christmas tree from Balsam Hill has cleverly designed hinged branches and sits atop a lightweight, collapsible stand, making setup and takedown simpler than ever. A tree from Balsam Hill is a perfect complement to your Christmas decorations.

And with over 50 different styles of pre-lit Christmas trees, pre-lit Christmas wreaths, and pre-lit Christmas garlands, Balsam Hill strives to offer a high quality product to satisfy any holiday style.
