RVing with kids is such a fun adventure! There’s something about bringing the whole family and making memories around the campfire that bring everyone a little closer together. We know that it can also be a hassle to ensure that everyone is having a good time and they all have something to do in either your new RV or one that you’ve had forever. We’ve compiled a list of 3 RV camping tips for RVing with kids!
1. Bring Water Toys and Floaties
First, you’ll need to do some research on whether your camping destination is near any body of water. A lot of campgrounds have nice, clean lakes, or they provide you with a public pool. For 80 degree days, swimming is the best activity to participate in. Your kids will love it!
A tip we’ve found helpful is storing some water toys and floaties in your RV all summer long just in case you need them. Swimming is fun on its own, but toys are always a good idea! And of course floaties are for if you have younger children (leaving these in the RV between RV trips will relieve some of the stress of trying to remember every time you go).
2. Have Movies and Coloring Books Available
When the weather says it’s going to be a beautiful weekend, and then you get there and it rains the whole time? Yeah, we’ve been there, too. It’s not a fun experience if you’re not properly prepared. For those of you who have TVs in your RV, make sure you switch out your movies once every few trips just in case you get a rainy day twice in a row. You won’t want them bored with the same thing.
Coloring books is the other option if you’re in a smaller RV that doesn’t provide a TV! This may seem obvious, but they’re fun. If your kids are a little bit older, bring some fun board games to play around the dinette.
3. Prepare a Meal with Their Help
This one is so much fun! If it’s not done right it can be a bit chaotic, but just make sure that everyone has a job to do, and it’ll be a smooth ride. They’ll love being able to help you cook, and it’ll be a fun camping experience for them to learn some new things.
Have them help you pick out a meal they’ll like and then take them to the grocery store beforehand to grab the ingredients. It will seems as if they’ve done this project all on their own, and it’ll be an entertaining and fun activity for you to oversee.
Relax and Have Fun!
