These fun Camping Recipes for Kids will create so many fun memories for the entire family.
This is our little Serro Scotty. It’s so cute and we just love it! It is getting a big small for the 5 of us so we purchased a new tent for my 2 older boys. They loved sleeping outside and we loved the extra room! You can view all of the pictures of our Scotty including the inside view HERE
Camping Recipes for Kids
The most requested recipe from my boys is Campfire Mac & Cheese. This is so easy to make and this can be made on the grill as well (which is what we did this time).
Campfire Mac & Cheese
Directions – Boil your macaroni noodles before hand and place them in 2 foil containers. You will need Velveeta cheese and milk. Cut up half of the Velveeta cheese in chunks and mix them in with the noodles. Mix in a little bit of milk (about 1/4 cup for each container.
We also shred a Rotisserie chicken and mix with barbecue sauce. Place the mixture in the same kind of container before you leave on your camping trip. We place these in large plastic bags to make sure they do not get wet from ice in the cooler.
Cover with the lids or foil and place them on a grill or over a campfire until heated through…
This is a favorite with my family and doesn’t take a lot of prep…super easy!
“Beary” cute S’mores..
My 4 year old really loved these! Cut large & mini marshmallows in half. Attach on the large marshmallow halves on front for the nose and the mini marshmallow halves on top for the eyes using chocolate cookie icing. Add a mouth with the icing and place on a chocolate chip for the nose and ears. Add mini chocolate chips for pupils on the eyes. Bring these along premade and place them on top of a roasted marshmallow. I bet these would put a big smile on anyone’s face!:)
This Camp Fire Fruit Snack that we came up with is one of my personal favorites and a great way to get the kids to eat a healthy snack!
Place different fruit slices in the middle of a plate including pineapple, oranges, and red apples. Place Pretzel Dipping Sticks around the fruit to look like logs. It really looks like a fire…so cute!
Our all time favorite S’mores is Cookies ‘N’ Creme Peanut Butter S’mores. We created this idea awhile back and it’s the BEST S’mores you will ever have…trust me!

Camping Hot Dogs – Instead of taking hot dog buns…we like to use Crescent Strips on the grill to make our hot dogs. Place half of a cheese slice on the hot dog and wrap the crescent strip around the hot dog. Place them on non stick foil and grill until they are done. You can also do this over a camp fire using a stick.
Watching your kids explore in the woods, making fun nature crafts, cooking over the fire, and being together as a family is what makes camping so special. I hope we fill our boys with wonderful memories of our camping trips.
Leave us a comment of your camping ideas and memories. We would love to hear them and might give them a try!
