Like crazy people (ha!), we are taking our kids camping in a tent for the first time this weekend. Don't get me wrong, my love of nature and the outdoors definitely extends to camping, we have just switched to cabins or house rentals when taking family 'outdoorsy' vacations over the past, um...8 years!!!

Well, no longer! The kids are SO excited and I'll let you know how it goes, but just for fun (it is Friday after all), I thought I would share a few of my favourite finds for camping that we'll be taking on our trip.

Earlier in the week, I shared a little backyard day 'camping' that we did with the kids and I they loved it. If you are looking for summer ideas to keep the kids entertained and playing all day right from home, I've rounded up some fun finds for backyard camping and a few of these items would be great to take along on a real camping trip too.

Happy Friday friends!
