Tempted to take the kids camping but put off by the hassle? The answer for a stress free adventure could be closer to home than you think.

Avoid the driving, packing, and the dreaded portaloos and make the most out of your mini adventure and the quality time with the kids with these top tips from The Bedding Company:

1. Make sleeping arrangements as comfortable as possible with the help of lilos, camping mats and cushions.

2. Plan activities that the whole family can get involved in, such as board games and cards.

3. Get the kids involved in cooking, no matter whether this is preparing a picnic or heating a hearty portion of baked beans over the camp stove.

4. If safe, give your camping trip that real outdoorsy feel by lighting a small fire and toast marshmallows over the flames.

5. Focus on each family member by encouraging them to showcase a talent, be it singing, dancing or juggling, to keep you entertained all night.

If you’re in need of a re-fresh of your camping equipment, The Bedding Company has a variety of different products as well as ‘The Highplains Two Man Tent’. It comes in three styles; Camouflage, Leopard and Vintage Floral, so they’ll be no arguments over taste.
