4. Camp in the backyard
Just because you’re not ready to tackle the outback doesn’t mean you can’t go camping. You can set up a tent right in your own backyard. The kids get to experience the fun of camping, and you get to hang onto the niceties of civilization.
Running out of diapers in the middle of nowhere is a big problem, but it’s not quite so daunting when you can just run inside and get more. Plus, if it’s 3 a.m. and the kids decide they’d rather be in their own beds, all you have to do is take everyone back inside.
