One thing we all love to do as a family is go camping. Pack up a tent, a few family camping essentials, and head to the nearest campsite. Not only is it cheap, with barely any money needed to spend when you “rough it”, but it’s also a great way to get the kids outside enjoying nature and away from their electronic gadgets.
Now, as we all know, I’m 8 months pregnant. Thus, I feel like being surrounded by plush and comfort more often than not, so camping hasn’t been especially prevalent this year. Sometimes, though, you still just need to get away and the July 4th holiday weekend is the perfect occasion. And when the time comes, you want to make sure you’re prepared. First, when you need to go, it’s best to go with Scott® Rapid-Dissolving Toilet Paper.
Available with the convenience of Subscribe & Save at Amazon where you can save up to 15% when you subscribe to 5 or more products, Scott® Rapid-Dissolving Toilet Paper is a true summer essential.

However, when you’re going camping with kids, you’re going to need more than TP. Though that helps, too. Here are a few of our family camping essentials.
Food – Going camping is the perfect excuse to splurge on hot dogs and s’mores cooked over an open flame. Make sure you bring enough to go around! You should also be sure to bring plenty of water.
Sleeping – Make sure you have a tent and enough sleeping bags for all. Along with that, you may need rope and tarps for additional comfort under the tent.
Necessities – Scott® Rapid-Dissolving Toilet Paper is a great start! This rapidly dissolving paper breaks down four times faster than average bath tissue, making it the perfect take along to go when you go. Other essentials may includes flashlights, matches, a map or compass, and pocket knife. My kids also wouldn’t venture out without bug spray.
First-Aid Kit – This is another essential, though it deserves it’s own spot on the list. Who knows what you can get into as the night of camping wears on. Burns, scrapes, cuts, bumps, and rashes could all occur. At the very least, you should have bandages in a variety of sizes, gauze, antiseptic wipes, and antibiotic cream stored in a waterproof container.
Games – Kids may only be enthralled with nature for so long. Bring a deck of cards for a few rounds of go fish, set up a scavenger hunt with a number of free printables available online, make some nature crafts, or play flashlight tag as the night wears on. For the older kids, bring a camera and let them snap the natural wonders they come across.
