This month, parents share tips related to camping and hiking to help you through the summer. Send your parenting hacks to ideas@kidsvt.com.

We love Cosmic Wimpout and Qwixx. Both are dice games so they are super easy to carry, even for backpacking trips, and don't take up a lot of room.

I have a Coleman camp cooker and make grilled cheeses over the fire, which the kids love.

My favorite camping meal is Thanksgiving in a bowl. Boil some hot water over the campfire and give everyone a bowl full of dried mashed potato flakes, dried stuffing and dried cranberries, and mix it all together. Easy and filling!

We build a lot of fairy houses and, lately, include "people" and rocks or wooden pieces with statements written on them. Sometimes we make flower or leaf wreaths to wear on our heads.

My husband and I like to bring a small bag of M&M's on hikes with our almost 4-year-old. As he starts to complain and drag his feet, the candies are doled out one by one and keep him going.

Guide books are fun and distract from the "are we almost there?"

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
