Camping at Home Day

My name is Sarah, I am a children’s author and today we are going to going on a camping adventure at home!

First, we will be finding out about the equipment you will need. Next, we will be cooking some delicious food to enjoy whilst we are camping. Then look out for some fun camping games we can play with our grown up. Then we will be getting creative and making our very own campfires! Finally, we will snuggle up in out tent and share a story called ‘The Very Noisy Night’.
