If you enjoy camping, you probably already heard about a five-star approach to it, called glamping. If you are wondering if that's possible while having kids, yes, it is!
Even better, what about creating a glamping-themed party day in your backyard this summer? Here are seven ideas to help you enjoy sunny days with the whole family.
1. Add a welcome sign to make it feel real
A welcoming sign into the glamping experience is the best way to set the party's tone. It will make them feel like they are arriving at a new camping site!

2. Make custom cups
Is there anything more exclusive than a metal camping cup with your name on it? Imagine how the kids will feel with that simple detail. Besides that, it can be a great memory to save from the summer they have spent in 2021.
3. Prepare some campfire treats
All you need is marshmallows, chocolate, and lollipop sticks. You can also add some crushed cookies to finish it off if you prefer.
4. Plan a scavenger hunt
Now that the party is all set, it's time for the games! Don't forget to include a scavenger hunt because it is a must on any summer bucket list.

5. Add cute mini teepees
There is no better way to feel like in a campsite than by adding mini teepees with the kids' names on top of it. They will instantly feel like on a summer camp trip - but even better, with a glam twist!
Our Play Mats can be the soft surface to protect your minis inside the teepee. Imagine this cute set below, but outdoors?
6. Don't forget the funny messages
Make it feel even more fun, with messages about very dangerous bears, which are actually stuffed animals. The point is to create some adventure feelings and help to bring the glamping experience to the next level.

7. Create a lounge area with an inflatable plastic pool
Kids got tired of playing summer activities? Try repurposing the plastic swimming pool to create a lounge area. Add some popcorn, pile a few colorful cushions, and get ready to cozy up and watch a movie outdoors.

8. Create the dreamiest movie night set
Speaking of movies, you cannot forget a good one to watch at night, when the sun is gone. Put some string lights and voilà: a memory that they will never forget!
Outdoor play can significantly affect children's well-being and development, so take some time to explore it this summer. However, don't feel pressured to recreate all the ideas, just what speaks to your heart. After all, parents also deserve as much rest as their children.
Enjoy your Summer!
