Every once in awhile you’ll experience some rain on your fun camping vacation. While no one every wants it to happen, it is a fact of nature. It doesn’t have to be a sad time, though. There are plenty of games you can play with the kids to keep them entertained until the sun comes shining through once again.
Also known as werewolf, this is a game of intrigue that can eat up hours of downtime during a storm. It’s a turn based game where “town members” have to find the Mafia, before the mafia picks everyone off!
Heads Up Seven Up
If you’re dealing with a larger group of campers, then a game like heads up seven up can be a great way to ride out a storm. This guessing game requires the kids to be as quiet as possible when picking who to select when guessing. The other kids have to really work their brains to figure out who selected them.
It’s a great way to get some quiet time as an adult, all without sacrificing the enjoyment for the kids.
This is a classic that has been around for decades, and is very versatile when it comes to adverse weather conditions. With the kids gathered near a window in the camper or at the front of the tent, there are countless possibilities for things to see. This also allows your children to get the best view of the area they’re in without actually getting to explore it. This helps them enjoy the nature a bit more, and can help them find their way back should they get lost later on in the trip.
Getting caught in the rain during a camping trip can seem like a letdown. But with a little bit of creativity and the above game ideas in mind, you should be able to overcome any weather condition.
