Easy and Cute Kids Camp Journal Printable [Printable PDF]!

What better way to enjoy a family camp trip than to see it through the eyes of a child… by giving them their very own camping journal to document it!

Ever since I did my camping crafts post, I have been SUPER fascinated with paper crafts! When I was scoping out good tent crafts, I found one that was very real looking, and all made from a single sheet of paper!

So that got me thinking about what other cool camping crafts could be made with a sheet of paper… and this little camping journal was made!

Its small size makes it really easy to put into a pocket, and the prompts inside really encourage kids to explore and take note of their surroundings. I’m going to do this with my preschooler and just guide him through it – I’m curious to see his answers!

Let me show you how to make this cute printable kids camping journal!
