FAMILY FORT

Family FortCamping indoors is a great time to use problem solving skills, share stories and make memories. Either build a fort out of furniture and blankets, or set up a small tent. Don’t forget the campfire—decorate paper towel or tissue roles and tape around an electric candle or flashlight. This is especially good if the power goes out.
