A week or so ago I had an indoor camp out for the mom's group. We held it at the local library in one of the large conference rooms. I set up an indoor play tent, we had a fake fire, "roasted" marshmallows, made smores, sang songs, read stories, and ate trail mix. The kids had a blast! Adam made the fire for me out of paper towel rolls, and construction paper. The marshmallows that we "roasted" were squares of white paper glued together only on 3 sides, and then had a large popsicle stick inserted. That way the kids could remove the "marshmallow" and put them on top of the graham crackers and chocolate we had ready for them. The crackers were just simply squares of cardboard, and the chocolate was squares of brown or black construction paper. The crafts were very simple but the kids enjoyed every second of it!
The stories we read were: Scare a Bear by Kathy-jo Wargin
and Just me and my Dad by Mercer B. Mayer
