Picnic in a Tent for Family Home Evening



My hubby called from work and suggested this idea. Which is perfect because the lesson tonight was on the important role of Fathers.




He picked up some sandwiches from Quiznos and then we packed up the following in our car for the short drive up to the park:



- kids-sized tent (because we aren't really a camping family...we don't have a real tent)
- a tarp for the kid-sized tent (because we use the tent inside and I didn't want to get it dirty)
- 2 blankets for comfort
- 2 pillows to make it more homey
- drinks, chips, sandwiches



Load family in ...just like a clown car



Eat






Take turns telling made up stories



Teach lesson






QS: K, what's your favorite thing that Daddy does?
K: Kisses me.
QS: M, what's your favorite thing that Daddy does?
M: Gives me cookies.

Clean up, and use up energy playing at the park
