Our 1st Camping Adventure!

We went on our 1st camping adventure this past weekend and we have over 20 of the best camping fun food ideas for kids for you! We went camping 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! He did such a awesome job on this camper! Even though I stepped on a frog (so gross) I really had a great time and can’t wait to go back! The weather was perfect and 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!

Our Serro Scotty Travel Trailer

Here we all are with our cute little restored Scotty….

The table folds down and cushions lay down for the bed. The top comes out into a bunk bed….

The kitchen worked out great. The counter comes off for the stove and there is a microwave underneath it.

My 2 younger boys wanted to sleep together which is great so now we will use the top bunk area for more storage!

The boys had lots of fun playing with rolly pollies, they went on scavenger hunts, they made pine cone people and we went on lots of walks.

Such a fun trip and we are already planning another one! We have lots of fun food ideas for camping and can’t wait to try them out! I thought we would go crazy having all 5 of us in this little camper, but it was surprising at how well we all fit!

Our Favorite Camping Fun Food!

We made Banana Boats and stuffed bananas with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and graham cereal. 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, and pinching off caramel bits into 3rd’s and pressing on the top. Attach the kiss to the cookie using chocolate cookie frosting!

Acorn Treats

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.

Animal S'mores Toppers

We used the new Jet-Puffed S’moresMallows, a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar, and 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. We used edible eyes, chocolate cookies frosting, red sprinkles (tongue), white sprinkles (teeth), and 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!

  6. 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!

  7. Your family is soooo cute. I love the shots of the different things you made with the kids and the trailer. Your kids are very lucky to have such creative parents. Love it. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Btw, I go camping all the time and will totally making some of your recipes.

    Your trailer is ADORABLE!! I love the curtains, the color, and that little Scottie dog on the back. So much fun! We're going camping this weekend. With four little boys, it's an adventure for sure!

  9. ABSOLUTELY LOVE your camper and your ideas!! Gonna start begging my hubby to restore a camper for me.

    I am visiting from Strut Your Stuff Saturday. I love these ideas and we are going camping in a month so perfect timing:)

    Did you make that awning or purchase it? I love it and wanted to recreate or buy one for our next camping trip!

  12. Looks like a fun weekend. Just like you I'm a girly, girl with three boys. We've done the camping thing many times in a really nice motor home (which we no longer have). Lately the boys have been asking to go camping in a tent – I don't know if I game, but if we do I'll be borrowing some of these fun camping foods. Pinning this and following you via Pintrest and GFC. Please come share this post at Fluster Creative Muster Party

    Hugs, Smiles and Blessings,

  13. Got to this post via pinterest. Such a coincidence, I had to comment…my hubby, two preschoolers and i just this weekend had *our* first trip in our 1968 Scotty! And I'm a camping novice, too. Had a great three nights in PA and NY. Will check out your blog. Some great camp food ideas here, thanks!

    Your curtains are just so cute!! We had a semi-camping adventure last week and stayed in a historic cabin that had a sleeping porch for the kids. You guys did a great job and I'm sure created some wonderful memories for the kids 🙂

    Oh My Gosh, I love your little camper. It is really cute. I love camping, especially at the beach. I'll have to write down some of those recipes. My three year old will also only eat corn if it is on the cob too! I guess it is just more fun!

  16. Brenda @ SweetSimpleStuff

    Love the trailer … can I adopt your hubby? We need him at our house! My trailer needs a little help and my hubby has a 1968 Skylark that he is "working on" … LOL 🙂

  17. Oh my gosh! I LOVE your little trailer. How fun would that be! Thanks so much for adding our Pudgy Pies to your camping line up. I'm pinned them all for us this summer. Thanks!

    Oh, Jill, love your post, your s'more toppings are so cute, can you put up a closeup and tell us How Did You Cut Graham Crackers into rounds/ovals???!!! SSSoooo cute. Also, I wanted to let you know, I started making my own bug spray, it's awesome, you can google around or go to pinterest but I just basically mixed some soybean oil (bugs don't like it), glycerin (Walmart), witch hazel (Walmart), Bug Away essential oil I found on amazon (it's a natural mix of geranium, citronella, cedar, etc.), and some mint essential oil (health food store). It smells so much better than bug spray. I mixed it and put it into spritz bottles that my family keeps on their belts. Don't spray it on clothes, it might stain them (oil), but very natural and moisturizing. Good luck with your future camping endeavors!! So excited to hear how you made the s'more toppers! Thanks!!!
