Little Peanut Camping Essentials

Yesterday marked the first day of fall and we couldn’t be more excited about what fall is going to bring us! One of the activities that we love to do in the fall is to go camping and spend a little time in nature. Nice fresh weather {not so melting hot} and beautiful scenery! Not to mention lots of colorful leafs, sticks and rocks to keep our little peanuts entertained for hours! We will be the first to admit that camping can be a lot of work but it can also be an amazing family experience. If you are not sure you are up to spending the night out in the wilderness with your little ones you can even start out doing some camp-outs in your own back yard! We can’t even tell you how much fun we had on our first “real” camping adventure and here is a list of our must-have little peanut camping essentials to create the perfect experience.

1. Outdoor Blanket | 2. Hunter Boots | 3. Mess Kit | 4. Kids Chair | 5. Tent | 6. Kids Sleeping Bag | 7. Roasting Sticks | 8. Lantern | Klean Kanteen Sippy | 10. Bug Spray + Sanitizer


Hands down our favorite {the mommas} camping essential would have to be the outdoor blanket by JJ Cole! The stripes are not only darling but its water-resistant material is perfect for any outdoor adventure! We take ours to the park, hiking and of course it’s a must for camping with it’s easy clean up! It also folds up into a stylish bag for easy packing around on your nature walks.


If you asked our little peanuts what their favorite camping essentials are we are pretty sure they would all say the tent + children sleeping bags! The minute we started to get the tent out of the bag they all got so excited and wanted to help put it up. We helped them hammer in the stakes and once their new house was up they grabbed their bags and moved in! Lots of giggles and excitement came out of playing in their new outdoor home! Of course any outdoor sleep-over wouldn’t be complete without sleeping bags and we are loving these bright and fun kid sized sleeping bags from REI! Just by changing the atmosphere and their sleeping space bedtime just became a whole lot funner for these guys!


Make sure to check back the rest of this week as we dive into our camping adventure and share some easy meal options and crafts + activities for your little peanuts!
