I know, I’ve said before I was going to do a fire camp style but with all the rain we had it was no fun, but luckily this stove saved the day! I mean, with all the heat it can generate. It was so nice and warm.
I bought the gas canisters separately from local Halfords Store. I bought 4 canisters for the price of 3, (£1 each). Thinking that we would need a canister a day, so I bought four just incase. But by the end of our trip, I had a closer look at the canister and it said 1 canister should last about 1 hour. But we had used about 1 and half canister for the whole trip! This is such a great value as we were using a lot of heat to keep ourselves warm.
2) Family Camping Cookset – Charcoal

I found these are very useful and compact. They are designed in the hard anodised aluminium. There are two saucepans and universal lid which are lightweight and durable. With folding silicone handles that are stackable composition. This is great for packing and travelling with. The Family Camping Cookset is just what you need for some outdoor eating at camping, festivals and general outdoor use.

I absolutely love this Family Picnic Set. It has got everything that you need. It is not just the clever designed that I admire, it is very colourful, stylish and practical too. The perfect way to go picnicking. It is lightweight, so there is no issue carrying this to your ‘spot’. There is also internal cooler compartment keeping your food and drink chilled as you go.
This gives the kids much exciting to a “real” picnic (lots of mummy’s points here) with a myriad of utensils and pockets, the Family Picnic Set is a great idea for family days out and camping trips too. I must admit after our little camping trip, my kids have also been playing cafe with them too. I would highly recommend this picnic set to all!
So I guess we have survived through our very first family camping trip ever at the Big Family Festivals despite the heavy rain. Hoorah!
Nevertheless, I kept thinking what I actually should be bringing – food wise- to make our first family camping trip a little bit more special and more memorable for the whole family to enjoy. I have therefore asked for some tips from my fellows bloggers. Check out what they’ve said here: “Eating Outdoor Tips For A More Memorable Family First Camping Trip“.
