Camp out overnight in the backyard

Camping out overnight in the backyard is a good way to introduce your kids to camping in a safe environment. Set up the tent, cook a barbecue dinner and then spend time telling stories, playing games and just talking. Do some stargazing if possible, and just listen to the sounds of the night. You can do this as a dad date with one child, with the whole family, or let mum have the house to herself and camp out with all the kids.

Tips:

Make use of time before school

Take your kids to school, at least occasionally.
