Over 20 of the Best Camping Fun Food ideas for Kids!!

We went on our 1st camping trip this past weekend in a vintage Serro Scotty Travel Trailer that my husband restored. I am not the camping type and never thought I would like it, but we had a blast! My husband owns a shop (Mills & Co) here in Marietta,GA & they build & restore old cars. He did such a awesome job on this camper! Even though I stepped on a frog (so gross) & got smacked in my face with a heavy board (thought I broke my nose) …I really had a great time and can’t wait to go back! The weather was perfect & no bugs!! Things like this make me realize how girly I can be, but I am going to have to toughen up having 3 wild little boys that love to get dirty!

Remember our homemade Camping Costumes from last Halloween! We recreated our little vintage trailer out of boxes! My boys loved them and they won 1st place in the city of Marietta, GA costume contest!

We also had Corn on a Stick (this is the only way my 2 year old will eat it). Break the corn in half and push a bamboo stick in the bottom….

We made Acorn Treats using a Hershey’s Kiss, Mini Wafer, & pinching off caramel bits into 3rd’s and pressing on the top. Attach the kiss to the cookie using chocolate cookie frosting!

Mommy…are these Acorns really edible..for real??

We also came up with these fun Animal S’more Toppers. We made a Bear, Racoon, & Bear Claw Feet. You can do all sorts of animals ahead of time & let the kids place them on top after they heat the marshmallows. We used the new Jet-Puffed S’moresMallows, a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar, & Graham Crackers. Cut the graham crackers into circles using a round cookie cutter or you can also just cut around the edges using kitchen scissors. Works great and will not break! We used edible eyes, chocolate cookies frosting, red sprinkles (tongue), white sprinkles (teeth), & mini marshmallows to decorate. Put them in a container before you leave and pull them out for a easy and fun s’mores treat for the kids! My boys loved them!

Love your camper! Is it a 69? I raised my three girls camping in tents. I have finally got old enough for them to let me get A camper. Looks like your but has not been restored yet. I have twin grandsons now that we took on their first camping trip this past summer in tents but will be in our little scotty this coming summer. Love the recipes!
