Of course no
camping trip is complete without a nice long hike. And if you go on
a long hike,
you just HAVE to take along a snack! So...have each
camper use his/her counting, scooping,
and writing skills to create his own individual trail-mix recipe and snack
In advance set out bowls of ingredients like...peanuts, raisins,
choc chips, mini marshmallows,
stick pretzels, granola,etc... Place a tablespoon in each bowl.
Next...make a large recipe for children
to use as a guide on a 11x14 piece of poster board. I drew pictures to
make mine easy to follow!
Invite each camper to scoop from 1 to 3 spoonfuls of each ingredient
that he likes into his
own ziplock bag. After he adds each ingredient have him record the number
of spoonfuls used.
Have each camper take home their own recipe to share with their

Raisins, coconut, peanuts, and pretzels. Invite
children to place
a spoonful of each ingredient into a small plastic bag for trail food.
Go for a walk and
stop to eat the trail mix for a snack.
Spread marshmallow cream and fudge frosting on graham
crackers for some easy and tasty símores with no campfire.
Break up graham crackers into bite sized pieces (or
pick up some
Teddy Grahams), mix with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.
Teach children how to build a campfire. Start by
placing a small pile of coconut
(tinder) on a napkin or plate. Place small rod pretzels (kindling) in an
or square shape. Add larger rod pretzels (logs) on top following the base
shape. Sprinkle chocolate chips (charcoal) on top. Enjoy!
You will need: 12 m&m's for the fire ring rocks, three pretzel
sticks in the shape of a
triangle for the fuel, Hershey kiss for the fire starter (a girl scout
trick), coconut for
the tinder, potato sticks for the kindling, a little piece of red licorice
string for the
match, and then, of course, you must roast a mini-marshmallow on a
Place goldfish crackers on a blue napkin (as a lake
or pond). Have the children
dip pretzel sticks (fishing pole) into peanut butter (bait) and then
touch the peanut butter to the goldfish....ĒHey, I caught one!Ē

If using a can, you can kick it to mix it, but be sure that both lids are
duct-taped very well first.
Shaking the container can easily tire some
people. (Make games: how far can you kick it;
can you kick to a "goal"; can
yours collide with someone else's?)
Leaving the skin on slice halfway through the long way. Place broken
