Just invest in some good sleeping bags and mats as others have said. Will serve you better in the long run. Any heat source other than your bodies is bad news in a nylon tent.

Lots of good places to get what you are looking for. I know R.E.I. in the U.S. is a great spot. The thicker your sleeping mats (not the big air beds. they suck in the cold) the better insulated from the ground you will be. As far as sleeping bags well that will take you a bit of research to decide what will work best for you. My wife and I use barrel bags (zipped together) rated to -10C / 14F for most of the year and if I get colder I just sleep with a toque and some long undies on. We have a mummy bag for our daughter which is rated to -15C / 5F. Lots to look at and research but it will be worth once you are out there and nice and toasty warm. Have fun with your kids.

I was laughing at the image you created. Yes, people do mention it can be tippy if you aren't careful, which I think would be somewhat a given for the operator when shitting on a folding portable toilet seat on anything less than a level, hard floor. So maybe a peice of plywood would be in order. I don't know, I have never used it, and I heard good things about it. Maybe instead of rolling to the side to wipe your ass, lift your ass off the seat first.

It does look like they could improve on this by redesigning it with two legs in front, one in back.

If, perchance, I do get a chance to gather empirical evidence that contradicts you suppostion, I shall be delighted to post up and let you knwo that your an idiot. And you know that's a given!

But now we digress, and it seems we should create another thread on How to Shit in the Woods...becaues we wouldn't want to mess up the OP's tred here.

Outhouse. But if I was camping out in the middle of nowhere where there wasn't any outhouses then I would crap in a hole. Just have to make sure that it's not near the campsite, water source etc.

A pop up toilet inside one of those showers tents. I got mud up to my knee from a hole once getting up to go at 2am. Jasmine don't play that anymore.

People die from putting heaters in tents.

I camp in 20-30 degree weather all the time in Utah and never have a problem.

Just man up or get some extra blankets.

Like everyone else said get a good mat of some sort to insulate you from the ground. Not how well it works for other people but I find the less clothing I wear to bed the warmer I stay at night camping. And I am over the whole mummy bag thing I just take an old bulky sleep bag for underneath and blankets for on top of me.

A tree to prop against, and leaves to wipe with.
