Set up an Outdoor Camping Experience
If you’re missing the great outdoors or your kids need something different to break the routine then why not try setting up camp in the garden. How elaborate this can be depends on how much camping gear you have but pitching up a tent and sleeping bag and watching a scary movie outside can make for a fun date and a break from the norm. Just add a few fairy lights for a romantic backdrop.
If you have a camping stove then it’s amazing what you can make outside or maybe set up the barbecue, some easy one-pot outdoor recipes include pancakes, stir-fries, soup, and pasta dishes. With the barbecue, you can go for grilled meats, vegetables, and fish for a satisfying dinner. Like any good camping trip, reading some ‘fireside’ camp stories or playing some quick-fire card games are what it’s all about.
Tip: If you’d rather not stay out overnight or don’t have camping gear then a good old-fashioned fort made of blankets will be enough to entertain bored children or get some fresh air undercover.
