We are very blessed here in Australia in that we experience warm weather all year round and so this provides the perfect opportunity to get everyone outside to sit down together and to enjoy some good food and good conversation.
Making it sound attractive however can be difficult especially for the kids and so if you suggest having a picnic outside at the beach for example, then the kids should be on board almost immediately. All you have to do now is to convince the adults and then find yourself the perfect picnic rug for everyone to sit upon. There are so many things that you can plan for the perfect outdoor picnic and you can incorporate good food, cold drinks and fun pastimes for the kids and adults if you put a little bit of effort into your plans. If this sounds like an attractive idea and you would like to learn how to plan the perfect outdoor picnic then the following should help with that.
- Bring along throws and pillows – These are essential pieces of kit to have because sometimes just sitting on your picnic rug in your outdoor space isn’t enough to get you completely comfortable. Once you find the perfect place for everyone to sit down, providing them with some throws and pillows adds an extra layer of comfort for everyone. You never know, the sun might go behind the clouds and the temperature may drop and people may be feeling a slight chill.
- Pick your picnic food – You want to think about food items that are incredibly convenient and so sandwiches always come at the top of the list. You might want to change a little by baking or buying some baguettes and to take a selection of luncheon meats and sauces with you so that everyone can make their own individual sandwich.
- Organise some games – If you decide to have your picnic at the beach for example, then that is a sand to have fun on and so it is very easy to plan some games like some footie, some rugby are just some water games where everyone can join in at the same time. It will tire everyone out and so get everyone’s appetites ready for some good food.
- Don’t forget the mozzies – Always bring some creams that will keep the mosquitoes away from the adults and kids. It is always a good idea to apply sun block on everyone’s skin to protect them from harmful UV rays.
These are just four ideas to help you plan the perfect outdoor picnic and there are numerous more. The important thing to remember is that everyone is comfortable so don’t forget that picnic rug and those extra throws and pillows as well.
