Top 5 Favourite Campfire Posts of May

 

It’s June and camping season is officially underway! Grab your friends and get outside… there’s plenty of things to explore! The Andy Camper team put together a great list of articles in May to help get everyone warmed up for another great year of camping and outdoor activities. We’ve compiled a list of our five favourite posts in the month of May:

 

 

 

1) How to Make Bacon Lip Balm – At first our readers were like: “Ewwwwww!”. But reaction from some of our campers since has indicated that this “bacon lip balm” is really good! Start sizzling up some maple-smoked bacon, and let’s make some delicious lip balm! Check out the article here: How to Make Bacon Lip Balm.

2) Attention Stargazers! – In the month of May we saw a wonderous event taking place in the night sky! You can read all about it, including Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury in our week-long look at stars and the gorgeous night sky. Get your stargazing fill at: Attention Stargazers!

3) Make a Fishing Rod for Kids – This is an activity that’s great for both kids and adults! Grab your new rod, some worms, and get outside and catch the next big fish! Learn how to do it at: Make a Fishing Rod for Kids!.

4) Campfire Songs: The Ants Go Marching – It’s a song we all love to sing! If you’re looking for the lyrics and some examples of how to sing it, check out Campfire Songs: The Ants Go Marching.

5) Where Can I Go Camping? – It’s official, camping season is underway! Of course, where in the world are you going to go? If you live somewhere in North America, there are a couple great tools for you to determine where you’ll be camping this coming weekend. Find out about all the best campsites at: Where Can I Go Camping?

Every month, The Kids Campfire Blog takes reader’s suggestions about outdoor topics and writes short articles to help develop a great resource for parents and kids. We really appreciate your feedback, so if you have any ideas for topics, we’d love to hear from you! Send us a Tweet on the Andy Camper Twitter account, or follow Andy Camper on Facebook!
