Plan Summer Adventures
Even if there are summer storms in the South, you can still go camping inside! Turn all the lights off and use Christmas lights to recreate a starry night. Make classic campfire snacks like s’mores (or our deep-fried version) and hot dogs and cuddle up, mosquito-free. Fun for a kids’ sleepover or a creative date night.
