Backyard Camping | Tips to make it a Fun Family Adventure

Backyard Camping | Tips to make it a Fun Family Adventure

When your family needs a vacation, but you’re unable to leave your home then it’s the perfect time to do a little backyard camping.

Currently, we are living in a time where all Americans are ordered to “stay-at-home” due to a virus. This order has halted the travel industry and has prevented families from taking vacations and enjoying life as normal.

Now, more than ever boredom is beginning to set in with parents and children if it hasn’t already.

We may not be able to all go to the stores or movies, but we can still get outside.

Setting up the perfect campsite in your backyard is an easy way to get outside and still stay safe. Plus, if you forget something, you’re still at home!

So, here are some fun ways to set up and enjoy a backyard camping trip with the kids. Get started in making those fun memories, making the most out of this world pandemic situations, while not actually going anywhere.

1. Pitch that tent!

Whether you have an actual camping tent or work on making a homemade tent with some sheets and sticks set it up. This is a great opportunity to either teach your kids to set up a tent or use their imagination in finding things to make a tent. Either way, it gets the whole family involved.

2. Light it up!

If you have tiki torches or patio lights, bring them out and light them up. Even if you don’t have those, but you have some holiday lights, those are a great alternative to add some light around your backyard campsite.

3. Build a Fire Pit

If you already an outdoor fire pit, this is perfect to roast those hot dogs and marshmallows.

However, if you don’t have some flagstones to build one and can’t get some, that’s ok! You can still have the outdoor backyard camping experience without the fire. You can make S’mores and hot dogs inside and eat them outside.

4. Bring out the sleeping bags

Once you have your tent and lights set up, go ahead and make the inside for sleeping cozy and comfortable. You can choose to use sleeping bags if you have them, or (since you’re at home) grab some blankets you don’t mind being outside and bring them into your tent.

5. Air up the Air Mattress

If you plan on sleeping outside go ahead and get out the air mattress so everyone can sleep comfortably.

6. Make some Yummy Treats

These treats of course involve S’MORES!!! The ultimate camping trip sweet treat that almost every kid loves to enjoy. Since you are home, mix it up and try some other S’more recipes like these 7 unique and delicious twists to the classic S’more.

7. Pop some popcorn over the fire

Popping popcorn over a fire can be a great and fun experience. You do have to have a special kind of popcorn maker order to do it.

8. Grill some burgers and hot dogs

Make your backyard camping adventure also a dinner experience. Kids love to roast hot dogs on the fire, and the adults can grill up some burgers.

9. Have a cocktail (Alcohol for Adults only)

Chilling outside is great time to relax and have a mixed drink. Of course, this would be for the responsible adults. However, you can bring out some juice boxes or Hot Chocolate for the kids depending on the weather outside.


10. Have story time

Kids love story time, especially when camping and sitting around a fire or in a tent. Use this time to engage and tell stories of when you were a kid or grab a good book.

11. Set up an outdoor movie

Having movie time outside is a great thing to do with kids that will bring wonderful memories they will cherish forever. If you don’t have a projector, now is the time to invest in one. You will also need a screen or a large white sheet.

12. Sing along songs around the fire

If you’ve got some musical talent in your family, grab a guitar or even a karaoke machine and have some fun. Sing along songs around a fire is great way to bring everyone together.

13. Play a board or card game

Bring out the monopoly, candy land, or cards and play some gold-fish. You can set it up in the tent and all sit around and snuggled in your sleeping bags and play.

14. Have a scavenger hunt

This is one of my favorite activities that kids love to play to get them searching and learning to use new skills by thinking critically. A scavenger can be a simple, “Find something blue”, or “Find something round”.

15. Make a craft

Kids love getting crafty and exploring their creative side. Think of a fun camping craft idea like making camp bracelets or paintings. Whatever you think your kids will enjoy doing.

16. Make Shadow Puppets

This is a fun activity for kids to show off some story telling and hand skills. What kind of animals can they make with their hands? You can also start with a craft and cutting out paper animals, gluing them on sticks, and use them to tell a story once it gets dark.

17. Explore your surroundings

Before you set up camp in your backyard, locate a local hiking trail to extend your outdoor adventure. Hiking is a great way to bring some exercise and nature together for everyone. Also, let your kids dig up some worms or explore the bugs that are safe like rolly polly’s or fireflies.

18. Star Gaze

When the sun goes down, turn off the lights and just look up to the sky. Try and find the different constellations. If you have a Telescope, now is the perfect time to put it to use.

Additional Tips for Backyard Camping

Don’t forget the bug spray. Whether you make your own or purchase some from a store or online, keeping the bugs away even in the backyard is essential. If you’re looking for some good Deet Free Bug repellant check out our post on “The Best DEET-Free Bug Repellant”.

Also, before planning your back yard adventures, you want to consider the ages of your children. What activities and adventures will keep them having fun and enjoying the adventure?

Final Thoughts

I hope you use this time to create an adventure even if you are stuck at home. Memories can be made no matter where you are at.

Please share this with other families so they can create their own home camping adventures.

7 Unique and Delicious Campfire S’mores You’ll Want to Try This Summer

Campfire S’mores are my absolute favorite treat to take on every camping trip.

It is also a kid’s favorite because it gets them involved and they get to create something Yummy!!

Also, by allowing kids to help out and roasting their own Marshmallows teaches them the importance of fire safety and builds their confidence. So roasting and eating these yummy treats is a win, win!

We all know the typical S’more recipes which is always delicious, so I wanted to offer some other unique recipes I found on the web. These bloggers and recipe sites have taken the traditional S’more and added some unique  and yummy twists.

Caramel Apple S’more

This first delicious treat is one that reminds me of another yummy treat and that is a Caramel Candy Apple. These remind me of going into a candy treats shop in Saint Augustine, Florida that had these caramel covered apples coated with marshmallows and chocolate bits.

It was absolutely delicious and I have no doubt that this S’ more recipe is just as yummy.

The Caramel Apply S’more is 4 simple ingredients that you can easily take along with you on your camping trip.

You can check out the Recipe here @Delish.com 

Dark Chocolate Campfire S’more with Fresh Berries

Summertime is the best time to get those Fresh and Delicious berries like Strawberries, Raspberries, and Blueberries.

Hershey’s Cookies and Cream chocolate is one of my favorite candy bars. It has the perfect crunch of a cookie with white chocolate.

It’s is a perfect substitute for the regular Milk Chocolate Hershey’s bar that is normally used for S’mores.

Heidi from The Frugal Girls has a great recipe here on her blog @thefrugalgirls.com

Nutella Campfire S’more

Another fantastic S’more by The Frugal Girls.

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE NUTELLA!! The thought of adding it to a perfectly roasted marshmallow and cinnamon graham cracker makes me excited for summer.

Campfire S’mores in a Bag

This option is a wonderful alternative to the traditional Campfire S’more Sandwich that you take on a camping trip.

7 Adorable RV Nursery Makeovers You Will LOVE

RV Nursery Makeovers are so inspirational, especially if you’re expecting a child or have children already.

Who doesn’t love a great before and after with gorgeous decor?

During my journey in deciding how we were going to rearrange our RV to add in all the baby stuff, I found myself searching to see what others had done.

You see, when you live in an RV and bring a baby on board, you have to get creative in ways you may not have been before.

Through my search, I fell in love with these gorgeous RV Nursery Makeovers and I am positive you will too!

This first RV Nursery Makeover is by Alexis Walls. Her and her husband have two adorable little boys that share their remodeled space. They were able to fit a toddler bed, crib, and dresser which holds all the boys clothes, blankets, and more.

What a great renovation and use of space. You can check out their full remodeled RV on their Instagram @thetinywallsfamily 

This gorgeous second RV Nursery Makeover is by Victoria Kepley. Her Instagram handle is @joyinthej0urney. They live fulltime in their fifth wheel with their baby boy and 2 pups.

I love the use of the space, and choice of the mini furniture like the crib called the Babyletto Origami Mini Portable crib. You can check out more useful baby furniture that is great for RV living here on my post “Must Have Baby Items for Your RV”

I love this next remodel! It is such a creative way to add space for your little one if you don’t have a bunkhouse or extra room in your RV. As you can see in the Before, they took out the chairs and replaced it with the beautiful dresser, baby bassinet, and bouncer.

This remodel is by Dee and Nate who live with their 2 dogs, 2 cats, and their baby girl. You can see more of their RV remodel by following them on Instagram @thejollyrogercrew.

How To Easily Paint Your RV Interior Walls

How To Easily Paint Your RV Interior Walls

Are you looking to paint your RV?

Are you wanting to add that touch of freshness to brighten up the small space and make it your own?

Well, you are not alone! RV Remodeling and Renovations are all the rave these days with the tiny living movement.

I know for us, painting our walls was the number one thing we wanted to do when we began our Full-time living journey. Although we bought brand new, I was not a fan of the beige walls.

So, whether you’ve purchased a used RV with cash or financed a new one, it’s ok to paint! It’s yours! Now I do want to disclaim that if you are looking to sell at any point, it is best to use colors that are generally neutral.

For us, we went with a satin white because one rule with Interior Design is dark colors will always make a small space feel even smaller. Whereas bright colors allow more light and make any space feel larger than it is.

This is why you see a lot of RV’ers painting their walls and/or cabinets white and then accenting that space with other colors.

Just so you know, and to maybe put your mind at ease, painting your RV’s walls with the right material is EASY!! Also, don’t be afraid to make it your own!

Here is a step by step on how we painted our RV walls and what we used to get the job done.

Step 1: Plan!

Planning is so important! Make sure you pick the colors you enjoy the most and pick the areas in which you want to paint.

For example, are you going to paint just the walls or the cabinets or both?

How much space are you wanting to paint? Our RV is 32 feet long and had to make sure we purchased enough paint to cover all the walls.

These were the top questions I had to answer in order to plan out the painting remodel in our RV.

Step 2: Purchase!

Now that you have the idea and planned out the colors and areas in which you want to paint, now it is time to purchase all the materials.

I feel like this is the step that gets people stuck because RV walls are made out of Vinyl and not the normal sheetrock in homes.

You want to make sure you use a paint and primer that is going to stick to the walls and cabinets. I have heard of many stories of people using paint and primer that ended up peeling off the walls/cabinets. Nobody wants that to happen because it just will cause even more work. Here is a list of what we purchased and used to paint our RV walls.

What we used: 

  • Painters Tape
  • Foam Rollers and Trays
  • Paint Brushes
  • Corner painters
  • Oil Based White Primer by Glidden (Many also use Kilz)
  • Glidden Premium Interior Paint & Primer in Satin White
  • Paint Stirrers
  • Paint Can Opener
  • Plastic or Cloth Drop cloths to protect any flooring or furniture.
  • Gloves (If Desired)

Other Items you may need:

Other options for Painting:

  • Spray Gun (many choose this option as a quicker way to paint instead of rollers and brushes. If you choose this option, I do highly recommend that the preparation stage is taken 100% serious and you cover every inch you do not want paint on.)


Step 3: Prepare

Now that you planned out your colors and where you want to paint and purchased your materials, now it’s time to prepare the space for painting. By this, I mean taping, sanding, and removing any valances and wallpaper that might be on the walls.

Many RV’s have a strip of wallpaper as an accent that has to be removed before painting. For us, we had no wallpaper, therefore, we only had to remove all the valances, tape everything off, and protect the items I didn’t want the paint to drop on.

Please keep in mind this part can become tedious and the anxiousness of wanting to get started on the painting is normal. However, this is a very important part to never skip because you want to make sure it looks amazing once complete! Also, having to go back and goo gone all the mishaps just takes up way too much time.

Step 4: Prime and Paint

Now that you have your supplies, and have prepared the space, go ahead and get started! Painting to me is fun, but for some, it can be frustrating. I enjoy turning on some good music and tackling sections by sections.

Start with the Primer always first. I recommend doing at least 2 coats of the oil-based primer to ensure the paint sticks.

Here is a little Before and After we painted the walls white and replaced the valances with curtains.

 

I hope I’ve made it easy for you! I remember when I was about to start the project of painting our walls, I searched through dozens of blogs trying to find the answers to all my questions.

Questions such as; what paint to use? Do I use a water or oil base primer? Do I really need to sand all the walls before painting?

Please, don’t let this project be overwhelming. Enjoy the process and you will enjoy the finished project. Whether you are living in your RV fulltime or just making a beautiful weekend getaway camper, have fun! Painting is just the beginning to making the tiny space your own.

If you have any questions regarding painting your RV interior walls, please leave a comment! I would be glad to give any advice I can!

By mixing these oils with some white vinegar, witch hazel, and some rubbing alcohol this will create the best homemade natural bug repellent. Here is a simple recipe you can try yourself.

Also, It is best when you mix these ingredients into a glass spray bottle and then use as desired. Glass is better because it prevents the plastic from deteriorating into the oil mixture.

RV Remodel : How To Use TIC TAC TILE To Upgrade Your RV Kitchen

RV Remodel : How To Use TIC TAC TILE To Upgrade Your RV Kitchen

Are you looking to do an RV Remodel to your home on wheels?

Are you checking out all the Instagram and Pinterest boards with beautiful remodels and dreaming about creating your own amazing space in your RV?

Well, you’re in the right place!

Before we even purchased our RV I knew I wanted to make my own modifications and do a little remodeling to make it fit our style. The main reason is that a lot of the RV’s are very “brown” and out of date.

If you’re like me you probably loved seeing all the amazing RVer’s that have transformed their kitchens on social media. Seeing these kitchens fueled my desire to transform ours and I hope it’s fueled your desire as well!

During my dreaming stage of an RV remodel, I noticed one modification many were completing in their kitchens was adding tile for a backsplash.

This is the first thing we did to add our own style into the space, and we have absolutley no regrets! It brings an incredible feeling of uniqueness and character to our kitchen.

After I decided that tile was what I wanted to do first, I began my search for the perfect lightweight stick on option that didn’t require all the fancy grout and plaster. I needed something quick and easy, something that would make a nice design statement. I also didn’t want to spend too much money because I was on a budget.

I searched through Home Depot, Lowes, and online. Through my research, I found a company and a product called TIC TAC TILE. Of course, I am a review type of buyer. If the reviews are not good, then I continue looking for another product. I always make sure I look at the negative and positive reviews.

What I found was that the reviews were mostly positive. The bad reviews couldn’t outweigh the good ones in my opinion. Plus the price was reasonable, compared to other brands that I found.

I was overwhelmingly excited to start the remodel on our kitchen! Something I had been dreaming of before we even purchased the RV. These tiles seemed like the perfect place to start.

Therefore, I decided to go forward with the TIC TAC TILE and ordered them directly off Amazon. They had the best price and fast shipping with Amazon Prime.

How to apply?

To start the RV remodel with TIC TAC TILE, let me be the first to say that the application is pretty easy. However, having patience and precision is key to making it look amazing. Here is a step by step on exactly what I did to apply my TIC TAC TILE.

  1. Clean —-> Cleaned the wall surface with a plain disinfectant wipe. You can also use white vinegar, TSP, or whatever kind of cleaning product that is multi-surface and has a degreaser.
  2. Dry —-> Make sure the wall is completely dry!! This is important. The sticky adhesive does not stick to any wet surfaces.
  3. Measure —-> Now when starting out you can get away with just adding an entire page of the tile, however, once you start to get around edges and windows, measuring is important.
  4. Cut —-> Once you’ve measured, now is time to trim the pieces to the desired/needed size. For cutting, I found after using scissors, that a box cutter and cutting board made the perfect tool. The box cutter is more precise and sharper when getting through the tile, adhesive, and the adhesive protectant.
  5. Stick —-> Now, remove the backing of the TIC TAC TILE that protects the adhesive. Then stick the tile on the wall to the desired position. It’s might take a few tries to get the hang of it and get it perfectly lined up.
  6. Repeat —-> Just go ahead and repeat steps 1 through 5 until the job is completed to your satisfaction.

Positives:

This product adds character to your RV with minimal prep. The product is heat and mold resistant, lightweight, and perfect for the kitchens and bathrooms in any recreational vehicle.

TIC TAC TILE is also very affordable and Eco-friendly! The material is very easy to clean after oil or splattered food from cooking gets on the tile.

Negatives:

Many have complained about the adhesive not sticking all the way and corners coming off the walls. However, there are steps to take to prevent this. Such as cleaning the area properly and adding your own additional adhesive to the edges.

I would also avoid applying the product while in extreme heat or humidity to allow the adhesive to stick properly. It is tedious work, so having patience while applying the product is important.

Where to buy?

As I mentioned, Amazon is the place I purchased our TIC TAC TILE. You can choose from a variety of colors and styles. We chose the classic white Subway tile look with the grey grout.

There are available as 12 x 12 sheets and you can either purchase 1 sheet, 5 sheets, or 10 sheets. I purchased the 3 of the 10 sheet packs to complete the kitchen and bathroom. I do have leftover tile, which I am okay with because I would rather have too much than not enough.

If you are thinking about changing things up a bit in your home on wheels with a little RV remodel then TIC TAC TILE is a great place to start!

We absolutely love the look and feel in our Kitchen now! It adds our own touch and flair to the space. Plus, our RV is no longer the cookie-cutter décor with the brown boring interior. 

The TIC TAC TILE also made the kitchen area feel like its own little corner by separating it from the rest of the RV’s décor. It almost feels like you get a new kitchen by adding the simple tile.

So, if you’re looking for a budget friendly way to add some flair and personality to your home on wheels then I definitely recommend TIC TAC TILE!

Have you used TIC TAC TILE in your RV? I would love to know what you think about it! Leave a comment below and share with anyone looking to make some transformations to their home on wheels!
