Last week I joined 3 other moms, and all 8 of our kids headed out for a couple nights of tenting at Coburg Beach, a great beach about an hour away.  Here’s just a few of our crew, waiting to head back to the beach.

One of the other moms, my friend Kendra, had this great kitchen camping box, and I thought you all might like this idea too as much as I did.

It’s a tackle box, and kitted out with everything you need in your camping kitchen!

Inside are all the treasures. One of the coolest little things, is old film canisters, turned into spice holders. The salt and pepper are also film canisters, with special lids.

She also had some sugar and cinnamon.

There was camping cutlery, as well as a mini wisk, and some serving pieces, and a measuring spoon and 1/4 cup measure.

There was also some dish soap, restaurant sugars, and moist towelets, a mini sewing kit, bullion cubes, twist ties, candles, matches and bag clips.

What a great idea. Any restaurant take-out items, like mustard, relish and ketchup, or peanut butter, jam, or honey small packages would also be good. Or maybe some tea bags, or a film canister of instant coffee, and coffee whitener. And for the spice lover, how about a mini bottle of Tabasco sauce and some red chilli flakes? Anything non-perishable and small that your family likes could be added!
