We have bought ourselves a tent for next year but I would like to get the DC's some accessories for stocking presents and wondered if anyone had any ideas, they are 3 and 5 (nearly 6), I thought of a wind up light, camping towel but have become a bit stuck after that. Any help would be appreciated.

Fleecy pajamas

bed socks

travel pillow - my youngest 2 have those fold up ones that look like an animal.

Fleecy throw

travel board games


own shower kit and camp towel

I will try to think of some more and come back.

A buff (they do kids versions). Mine wear theirs all the time when camping.

and what Norma said.

Anything wind up will save you a fortune in batteries as torches/lanterns invariably get switched on and left under bedding.

Ooh, camouflage netting sounds great. Where would I get that sort of thing at a reasonable price?

five - re: slubber's suggestion of buffs, they had some kids ones in our local TK Maxx - Oxford cycling ones, £5.99 for a pack of 3. Poundland have some camping gear in too.

I've never seen those i spy books before. What age are they aimed at?

Not sure but my 2 (4 and 5) love them. The pictures are clear enough for them to identify what they are looking for.
