Non Voyage: Pitch a Tent For a Backyard Adventure

If your kids are climbing walls begging for an outdoor adventure, but time and a budget are keeping you close to home this Summer — invest in a tent or tot-sized teepee that can be used for many nights out under the stars in the backyard. Kick the adventures off with a scavenger hunt through the yard or a "hike" around the neighborhood. Barbecue up some dinner goodies — chili and franks — and nosh on smores before hitting the hay. Then, wake your wee ones with a grilled breakfast when the sun comes up. Since these practical accommodations cost next to nothing, allow your children to invite their friends over to join in on the fun. Consider purchasing a star map for the kiddos to chart constellations and have a storytelling competition.
