We at Green-Mom are big fans of camping, and this time of year is when everyone wants to get out of the city for some quality nature time. The more you camp, the better you get at it. Practice makes perfect! So here are a few tricks, tips and fun projects you can use during your next camping trip to make life in the woods a bit easier.
· Bring along a tick remover
. They make removal easy, simple, painless, and efficient. Treat your clothes with a natural tick repellant
, or make your own by mixing
tea tree oil into a spray bottle with water.
· Can’t find enough suitable dry kindling? Doritos
work great in a pinch.
Cooking and eating well in a campground can be a challenge. Read on for some campfire cooking ideas:
· Prepare coffee pods
by using ordinary filters tied at the top with dental floss.
· Campfire cones
: wrap waffle cones in tin foil, then fill with assorted goodies like chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and chopped fresh fruit. Enclose tin foil at the top, and place over the campfire until the insides are hot and melty.
· After you’ve finished cooking for the night, place sprigs of mountain sage
on the coals to ward away mosquitoes.
