We also played The Candy Ball game. You play by rolling dice. When you roll a double you get to unroll the ball and collect any candy that falls out until someone else rolls a double. It was a hit with the kids!

Evenings were spent around a campfire as we told stories, played "get to know you" games and roasted marshmallows. Here is Gracie's one match fire!
