Family camping ideas to tire your kids out at Easter

Family camping ideas to tire your kids out at Easter

It will soon be Easter.  It’s a great time of year, especially if you like your kids hanging around the house bouncing off the walls on a never-ending sugar high.  There’s got to be a way for them to burn it all off.


Camping, as you know, is quite a physical holiday.  There’s no spotless hotel room that’s cleaned every day for you, no room service, and you have to set up and pack down.  But then what do you do for the rest of the camping trip?


Here are some great camping ideas for any family that wants to tire their kids out this Easter.

Attend a family friendly festival


Festivals are ideal ways to burn through Easter weekend.  There are all sorts of events happening over the UK.  After all we do like to spend a weekend under the stars. 


You could visit, Chester Food, Drink, & Lifestyle Festival which includes dog shows and kids cooking lessons.  Or you could visit the Daffodil Festival in Mells with parachuting teddy bears and an annual Easter Bonnet competition.


There are literally hundreds of festivals across the UK at Easter time, so hav

=e a look and see what takes your fancy.


Take your kids to the seaside for a camping break


The good thing about the UK is, we are almost entirely surrounded by beaches.  Where there are beaches, there are arcades, fairs, and plenty of other fun things to do.  Whether you choose to go Skegness and enjoy their escape rooms, paddle in the clear waters of Weymouth, or pop down to see Brighton pier, there is so much you can do to tire out those kids.


Near most beaches and resorts there are often camping sites with the option to have an electric pitch.  Let them run off their sugar in the oceans surrounding Great Britain.


 Rochester Essex Tourist Attraction

Camp near a tourist attraction


Another good thing about the UK is the amount of tourist attractions we hoard.  If you camp somewhere near London, getting about to visit Big Ben, Buckingham palace, Camden Market, or The London Eye is easy.  Or you could visit literally hundreds of the tourist attractions people flock to from all over the world.


The travelling and walking will certainly make sure the little treasures can’t make a late night again.  Think of the peace you will have that evening.


On a budget?  Camp in your own garden


You don’t have to venture very far at all to have a great camping weekend that will have the kids running ragged.  You could visit your own back garden and have a faux-camping experience built entirely by you.


You can crank out the barbecue, get the fire pit going, put a paddling pool on the patio.  There are so many things you can do to give your precious prince or princess a camping holiday without the massive budget.
