Going camping with children is one of the best activities that we can share with the family. Not only because nature is a constant source of inspiration for children and makes them feel free, but because it is the ideal environment to enjoy activities that are difficult to do in the city.
These have become one of our absolute go-to products for every trip we take – camping or even city exploring they come in handy. We did make the mistake of buying cheap ones early on, though, and they all needed replacing within months! We recommend something more sturdy and robust that will last as soon as they are responsible enough.
Again, another classic outdoor gift for kids that they will get loads of use from, they really range from novelty to quite a high tech. You are looking for durability as well as non-scratch glass as a key feature.
So you’ve seen things in the distance, now how about getting up close in the water. A seascape is a perfect way for kids to further explore marine life. Water-resistant with a built-in flashlight and rules – these can be used on land or water.
For your more advanced outdoor adventures, these bracelets are like a mini personal survival kit. They include a compass, a whistle, and a flint fire starter. More advanced models also include an LED light.

Speaking of sitting around the fire, unmissable outdoor activity, and I think what most kids look forward to the most is roasting marshmallows over the fire. Sure you can use sticks, but where we live sticks are few and far between so we find these an ideal solution:
Glow sticks aren’t only a lot of fun, but ultra, ultra-practical! We like the type that can be tied around their neck, they don’t cast as much light as the head torch, but they make spotting where kids have gone in the dark much easier.
A battery operated TV is not only television of a smaller size, not at all because the characteristic that differentiates them from other TVs is undoubtedly that they integrate a small battery, like the one that can integrate a mobile, thanks to which it is They can be used without having to be looking for a plug. Even if we have an external battery on hand, we may still be able to charge it while using it.
Kids Sleeping Bags
Sleeping Bags are one of those essential items, but let’s make it fun! Do think about the weather conditions, though, and how long a sleeping bag will last a child. Toddler-sized sleeping bags are cute but have a fairly finite life, so look for a slightly larger size, but as light as possible without losing out on the heat. There comes the point where kids want their independence from mum and dad and their very own tent. You want them to also display the independence of actually constructing the tent too, so look for easy build models that don’t need a million poles and pegs.
