Looking for family picnic ideas? Here are our handy tips for preparing a fantastic family picnic lunch!
Picking the Best Spot
There are so many places you can set up for a picnic, from your nearby park to a day at the beach. Why not combine it with a visit to a local attraction? A playground will keep kids entertained for hours, while choosing somewhere with bathroom facilities is definitely a smart move for a family day out.
Picnic Food Ideas
What would a picnic be without the food and drink? Be sure to bring plenty of water if you are out for the day, and pack light bite-sized snacks that can be shared with all the family. Check out our recipes for some inspiring picnic food ideas!
Preparing your food the night before will keep packing for a picnic simple and stress-free. Remember, reusable plates and cutlery are a great environmental alternative to paper, as they can be used again and again.
What to Pack
Why not get any little ones to bring along their soft toys for a real-life teddy bears’ picnic? Otherwise, a picnic blanket, hamper and a cool-box for drinks will keep everyone happy – as will some small change for the ice-cream van!
Be prepared for all weathers so you can picnic in comfort come rain or shine! SPF cream and hats are a must when it’s warm, while an umbrella can provide shade in the sun and protection from any April showers.
