Kids love camping out in the backyard. Roasting marshmallows, exchanging ghost stories, and hiding from the adults - just a few of their favorite activities.
Why not invite a few of your child's close friends and throw them a backyard campout birthday party. A great alternative to a traditional slumber party. Kids these days spend a majority of their free time indoors either watching T.V or playing video games, it's important to give them an opportunity to discover the magic of the outdoors.
