Turn a Simple Deck of Cards Into A Variety of Fun Rainy Day Camping Activities
From the time our kids were toddlers a deck of cards was always part of our camping gear.
They learned how to play slap-jack, war, and old maid when they were little. We gradually ended up playing hearts, spades, and spoons and even when they were teens a bit of poker using m&ms or marshamallows as chips.
Our deck of cards was also used for counting games and even to practice addition and subtraction. They even served to end squabbles over who would complete what camp chores. (High card got 1st choice and so on and so on)
Pick Up Sticks or JengaPick Up Sticks or a game of Jenga are small and easy to pack up in a backpack and can be played by the entire family regardless of ages.
When playing pick up sticks you can give your younger children two or three tries and to older children. Adults get one try.
