A few months ago we had the chance to guest-blog for our friend Sara Roe, the Money Saving Queen, teasing her about her trip to Disney Land. But a guest editor of our own, Benjamin Kalle. Check out his ideas for an outdoors person’s take on Disney!
When stress and restlessness are affecting you then you definitely need to relax and unwind as soon as possible. There are several great ideas to choose from to relieve yourself of the problems coming from the pressure of work and daily activities. But the most effective way is a long relaxing experience with nature. And one great way to do this is to go camping.
It would be great to take your entire family into a camping trip so that you could literally escape from the worries of everyday living and bond with the people you really care for. The bonding experience is a proven way of getting your thoughts away from career and work. A great place to go camping is near Disneyland and in Disneyworld. Here are several camping activities you can do to let go of all your worries.
- Campfire - In this activity you can do various things around a warm fire started from dried twigs and branches with your kids. You can then start cooking marsh mallows with them as you do some small talk. From there you can tell your kids stories of just about anything. Immerse yourself into this task and you will greatly be relieved of the stress of work and worries about your career.
- Outdoor Cooking - For this activity you can let your kids join in. The most common cooking method during camping is roasting. This is also a good time to teach your kids how to roast a hotdog or a skewered meat. Take your time with your kids as you prepare the things that you are going to roast. Enjoy every moment as you roast your meal together with your love ones.
- Camping Trails and Scavenger Hunts - These 2 activities require planning. But the end result is great fun for you and your family. For camping trails you will need to have a map for your kids to travel. The activity is all about getting to a specific location by following trails along the way. Be there as your kids try to solve it and find the spot that you want them to find but let your kids do most of the work. For the scavenger hunt you will need to be more creative. You need to provide clues that will lead to one large goal for your kids. This could be an specific item that you want them to find. Just remember to offer a prize that your kids will really love. These activities may require some work but the experience that you get enjoying them with your kids is worth it.
- Enjoy Disneyland and Disneyworld shows and special events - After all the outdoor activities you have with your kids you can take a break and visit several parks in Disneyland and Disneyworld. You can enjoy rides and even watch shows where Disney characters are presenting with singing and dancing together with your love ones.
These are the great things you can do to keep your mind off the worries of career and work when you have a camping trip to Disneyland and Disneyworld.
