Highlights@Home: Camp Out or Camp In

It’s National Camping Month and our newest collection encourages us all to Camp Out or Camp In! What better way to slow down, take a break from devices, spend time in nature, and have some fun with your family? Whether you camp out in a park or campground, find a little green space in your own backyard, or camp in in your living room, we have ideas to make your time memorable.

Part of the appeal of camping outdoors is the opportunity to experience darkness in new ways—from stargazing and crackling campfires to the nighttime sounds of owls, crickets, and tree frogs. The Hidden Pictures puzzle in this collection features a favorite camping activity: reading books in a dark, quiet tent by flashlight. Flashlights are, of course, a camping essential, as are campfire treats.

Whether you camp out or camp in, you’re sure to make a lasting memory with your kids.
