DIY Backyard Campout Birthday Party


This weekend, we hosted a backyard campout birthday party for my son's 9th birthday. We had a BBQ, neighborhood trail map scavenger hunt, a pinata, silly string war, and a giant dessert table. But after so much fun and sugar, it was impossible to get them to sleep!

The sign leading guests into the house.  Other signs were used around the backyard to identify other locations, such as the Camp Grub, Trail Ahead and S'More Station.

A trail mix station and party favors.  The silly string war was a ton of fun for the kids, but a bit messy for me to clean up!
