Littles Learning Link Up: Camping Fun Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children (including occasional highlight posts where I share how we used ideas that have been linked up here on Littles Learning Link Up).
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

It's time for this month's Round Up

Summer is in full swing, along with fun summer activities, such as swimming, vacations, cookouts, and camping. In fact, Hannah is away for the first time ever at sleep over camp (we'll be picking her up this afternoon), and the older girls will be going next Sunday to spend a full week. Poor Harold has to wait a couple of years before he can go.

For today's round up I wanted to share some fun kid-friendly ideas for going camping as a family. There are yummy looking desserts and a couple of simple ideas for meals. You'll even find some ideas for learning while camping. Then there is a large section on fun creative activities. There are even some tips for camping. Lastly, I included a few ideas for bringing camping home, for those who aren't able to go on a camping trip (such as us).

I will be pinning posts on my Toddler Ideas or other relevant board, and I would love to feature some of the activities each week from what is linked up.

Please know I may share a picture from your post and link back to it, along with sharing how we used your idea in our school time, if applicable.
