The Perfect Rainy-Day Activity

Rainy days while camping can seem like a real downer, but there are plenty of inside activities that can pass the time until the sun starts shining again. One of our favorites is Salt Art. All you'll need is some construction paper, glue, and salt!

Let your child (or you!) create a work of art with the glue on construction paper, then shake salt over it to create a 3D masterpiece. It's much cheaper than glitter and you may have all the necessary materials without even having to make a trip to the store!

If you have watercolor paints, you can add some artistic flare by giving your creation some color!

Happy Camping!
