Campsite Fun: What's in the Bag?

Camping is all about experiencing nature. Here is an inexpensive and fun way to entertain the kids and bring nature to their fingertips.

“What's in the bag?” is a fun way to experience nature indoors and out! It’s very inexpensive to make, which is one of the reasons this is a perfect game for camping.

Materials needed:

  • A non-transparent bag
  • Lots of objects from your campsite


  • Gather some objects from around your campsite: sticks, pinecones, leaves, rocks, etc.
  • Place a couple of objects in each bag.
  • Have your child reach into the bag but don’t let them peek inside.
  • After they have had a moment to feel and explore the object, let them guess what it is before taking it out of the bag.

You can even create a reward system. For example, whoever gets the most correct guesses gets the first hot dog at dinner. Get creative and have fun!
