Spring is here! What a wonderful day to spend a picnic with my family. I noted some tips based from this article to help me in my preparation. This needs to be perfect coz it’s been a while since we spend time together with my family.
Hi I’m Jen of Kitchen Counter Chronicles here for the Make and Takes Get Out and Play summer series! Summer has arrived and that means it is picnic season. Everyone loves a family picnic in the park. Eating and playing outside with a cool breeze and the birds chirping is so dreamy. We picnic a lot in the summer. Our picnic basket lives in our kitchen during the summer months, ready to be packed up at a moments notice.
The reality is that sometimes picnics don’t go according to plan. Things are forgotten. The food might be warm and melted. The idyllic park might be swarming with people. However, with a little preparation and planning a picnic can be an awesome outing for families.
1. Location, Location, Location It is truly possible to picnic anywhere. Spontaneous picnics can be a blast, however if you are planning to picnic with a group of young kids then you will want to do some advanced planning. Does the park where you are going have a play structure? Is there a wading pool or splash pad? What about a washroom…fairly important for kids (and adults). It is best to know exactly what you are getting into ahead of time. Choose your location wisely.
