If you’re at a loose end this weekend and feel like getting out of the house, why not take it to the backyard?
Backyard camping is an activity that the whole family can be involved in, and with no danger of last-minute changes to your plans, you can go all-out to organise a holiday in your own home.
We recommend pitching a tent, grabbing some camp chairs, toasting some marshmallows, and of course, securing some extra-cosy sleeping bags to enjoy a night under the stars.
This is the perfect opportunity to teach the kids your favourite card games, play charades, and perhaps swap some spooky stories as the night goes on. The best part about backyard camping is that if it gets too cold, your warm bed and a hot shower are only a few metres away!
