tiny tot's indoor camping

1 July 2016

We haven't had much free time of late what with one thing and another, and the summer is quickly passing us by. We haven't been camping yet this summer, the weather has not been very enticing in the UK and we have been just too knackered! We are working on our caravan a couple of days a week (whenever we get a spare few hours) so that we can go camping in it straight away. I think it will be a few weeks before it is ready.
I recently bought one of these canvas teepees that I keep seeing everywhere. I like the idea that they are so quick to put up (and take down once the tots are bored of it). The littluns had an afternoon of indoor camping which they seemed to enjoy.

I gave her some led candles, kindling and some log cushions for fire making.
Our three month old really loved watching his big sister.

After dinner around the campfire, it was story time.

...and then amazingly, they both fell asleep for 3.5 hours. Think we'll be doing this again!

In other news, we tried weaving, 

but she got bored after three rows : |

...and played with googly eyes instead.
