Most young children love to engage in dramatic play scenarios. Even mundane trips to the grocery store and doctor’s office can be exciting for them. I’m sure you can imagine how much fun your kids would have on a pretend camping trip! These camping activities for preschoolers are some of my favorite dramatic play camping theme activities for preschool and kindergarten.
