Toys to Bring When Camping With Kids

Toys That Make Camping an Adventure!

It's almost time for Spring break, and if you're planning a few days for your family to become at one with the fresh Spring air while camping, there may be no end to your vacation "what to bring" checklist. But before you load up all those sleeping bags and tents into your car, don't forget to grab some nature-related toys for your tot! Check out my picks below.

Your lil discoverer will love to get up close and personal with a handy magnifying glass like this one from Escapade Direct ($3) or with a bug collector kit ($27). A playful flashlight like Play Visions LEGO Minifigure LED Torch ($20) is small enough for little hands and fun enough that he'll want to take it with him when it starts getting dark. When it's downtime, a coloring book and crayons — like this camping-appropriate Creepy Crawlers Crayon Set ($10) — or an outdoor activity book ($6) will keep your wee one entertained. And nothing says adventure quite like an explorer's hat, so go classic with an Indiana Jones one ($15).
