Family Activity - Camping in the Backyard!

Backyard Camp Outs are the BEST!
You get almost all the perks of sleeping under the stars
without having to spend the day loading everything
but the kitchen sink,
so that you can go into the mountains to "rough it."
You can set up the tent and still enjoy the
comforts of indoor plumbing.
  Tents are a great place to . . . 
Read Stories
Play Games.
Remember to go outside when it starts to get dark so that
you can put on your glow bracelets, lay on the grass
and look up at the stars!
Pure Heaven!!!!
You can't go camping without treats!
Today's Dessert Bag Meal is Perfect for Camping
Don't Worry . . . everything you need to make a
great S'more is in the bag!
Camping (Dessert) Bag Meal
Here's the PDF:
Graham Crackers
Chocolate Chips
2 Liter Bottle of Root Beer
Glow Sticks
Mosquito Repellent
Jiffy Pop for the Fire

This would be a great time to try using your
Camp Stove!
It's perfect for the marshmallows and the popcorn!
Chocolate Chips and Marshmallows can be put
into quart-sized canning jars and sealed using a Food Saver.
(This will help to increase the shelf-life of these ingredients.)
This is a fun Bag Meal to have on hand
and it's a great wedding gift!

You're the greatest. I can't find the directions for the camp stove and how it works. Can you tell me where to find it?

It was the January 27th Preparedness Project post. I get my paint cans and paint can opener from Sherwin Williams . . . just in case you were wondering!
Have a great day!

By chance do you have any recipes that involve
the black beans from the cannery? My ward will be canning these soon and I've never used them before.
Thanks for all you do. I learn so much
from your daily postings!!
