Camping Themed Nursery + Free Printables

We’re just a few days away from our little boy’s arrival, so I thought I’d share a few photos of our nursery.

Camping Themed Nursery and Free Printables

I created the camping nursery art using recreational signs from the Federal Highway Administration. You can download the nursery art here:

Camping Themed Nursery

Whenever I walk by the nursery, I’m always tempted to sit in the chair. It’s the most comfortable seat in our house, and it has a great view of the treetops outside.

The baby blocks have the Greek alphabet on them. My husband Billy is half Greek, and we traveled to Greece on our honeymoon.

Hand-painted Paddles - Camping Themed Nursery

I fell in love with the painted wooden paddles from Norquay Co., but they were way out of my budget. Instead, my mom painted some inexpensive wooden paddles.

Book Ledges

My dad made the book ledges. We’ll always have good books nearby for story time.

Crib - Camping Themed Nursery

I chose a simple white crib and a few colorful fitted sheets.

Crib Bird Mobile - Camping Themed Nursery

The bird mobile is made of lightweight cardboard, so even the slightest breeze causes it to move.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of our nursery. We can’t wait for our little guy to arrive.

A ‘Little’ Announcement

Billy and I are celebrating our second anniversary today, so it only seems fitting to announce that we’re expecting a little one soon. I’m having a boy, scheduled to arrive in July.

Hiking in New Glarus Woods State Park

We’re very excited about our upcoming arrival. I had a bit of a struggle with morning sickness, but now I’m feeling great. I’ll share some photos of our camp-inspired nursery soon.

I’m already thinking about camping trips with our little boy. Although I guess you could say that he already camped with us in the fall at Great Smoky Mountains National Park and this past weekend at Blackhawk Memorial Park in Wisconsin.

Have you camped with babies or toddlers? I’d love to hear your tips and advice!
