Another quiet activity to plan for is story time. Bring some books from home to read before naps, bedtime, or whenever you and your kids want to do something a bit more low-key. While you're packing, ask your child to help you pick out which books to bring. Suggest packing a few well-loved favorites, as well as some new stories.
There are, of course, tons of camping-themed books out there. Some of the classics for young readers include: "Camping Out," a Little Critter book by Mercer Mayer; "Curious George Goes Camping," by Margret and H.A. Rey; and "Maisy Goes Camping," by Lucy Cousins.
