Glamp It Up

How would Fancy Nancy go camping? With glitter and feathers of course. Turn that outdoor camping adventure into an indoor glamping gala. Set up tents inside or drape your space in colorful sheets and scarves to build a glamorous fort, like this idea from Handmade By Kelly. Sing camp songs and have your guests make their own mini campfires out of toilet paper rolls. Serve up hot dogs and s'mores, no fire required.
