Indoor Camping Activities

indoor camp

Hosting an indoor camp-out with the kids during any traditional events like family gathering, reunion, Christmas holidays or even a perfect setting for this coming Halloween; can create memorable and fun with the kids.

But there are a lot of things you need to prepare to make your camping real; just like setting a bonfire, tent, food for camping, games, ghost story books, or movies and a guitar. There are many kinds of tents: backpacking tents, family tents or kids tents. Indoor camping is much safer than the outdoor because you can monitor your kids where and what they are doing. It can also save your money since you don't have to travel far away from your home for camping.

Indoor camping will not be boring if you are just prepared with the materials and program of the activities. This fun activity may give a super cool exploratory and adventure setting for your kids and the rest of the family members.

The christening service is private and expected to last about 45 minutes. Usually, royal baptism happened to be in Buckingham Palace as their tradition but at this time, it will be Chapel Royal at St James's Palace. The reason why William chose this place for it has sentimental memories with her mother, Princess Diana. There are expected six godparents for Prince George and only three of them have been officially announced. Fergus Boyd, a university friend and former flatmate of the Duke and Duchess will serve as godfather, as will Hugh van Cutsem whose daughter Grace was a bridesmaid at the royal wedding and Kate's childhood friend Emilia D'Erlanger. The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby will perform the christening. The full guest list has not been announced, although it is believed to be a relatively small gathering.

Be Financially Prepared for your Baby

When a newborn baby is about to come, being excited and overwhelmed can never be taken away from your face. However, you may as well feel worried and uncertain because you have to prepare both emotionally and financially. In the coming future, there will more expenses to deal with and more demands on your child’s budget that you must have to provide. There are important things that you need to do before the baby will come out soon.
  1. Clear off your previous unpaid expenses. Pay off your credit card, loans and start your maternity leave as soon as possible so that you can save more money.
  2. Buy baby’s needs. Before you buy baby products, make sure you know first the gender of your baby. Nursery decor, infant cribs, baby bedding, strollers, car seats and other baby accessories.
  3. Keep an update then take advantage of the promos and other discounted programs. There are baby brands offer sometimes anniversary or holiday sales, discounts and other surprises.
  4. Know what your medical insurance can offer. Some medical insurance companies offer some programs that may help lower your maternity expenses. This is very important since you will have to visit your doctor almost every day for check-ups, scans and blood tests. 
  5. Take advantage of maternity leave. If you are working with a company, you have to be sure whether you will be paid or unpaid during your maternity leave. You have to inform your employer ahead of your pregnancy. If you are unemployed, numbers 1 to 4 will do.

Having a child is the biggest decision in life you can make and plan, save and keep an update about related baby topics and information before your baby arrives.

Josh Duhamel has taken to Instagram to share a cute snap with his baby son Axl.

The 40-year old actor and wife Fergie welcomed their first child together back in August 2013 and Duhamel claimed: "He's our little man, we made him together. I think there's something you can't really describe until you go through it. I think any parents out there would understand that… It's just an incredible time for both of us."

And it seems Josh is still 'obsessing' over his son, uploading a snap of himself and Axl as they watched a footy match together.

He accompanied the pic with the caption: "Gonna catch some football with my little guy today."

Fergie is said to be doing "so great" following Axl's birth, with Duhamel adding: "She is happy. She looks amazing for, you know, three weeks ago she gave birth and she looks probably better than she did before."
