Wherever your family picnic ideas lead you, make sure that you have enough storage for your food and your blanket. Bring a tote bag or a backpack that holds everything to carry it conveniently. Get creative – present your food in cleverly-packaged ways. Place salads in plastic cups with a lid and stick the handle of a fork out through the hole normally used for a straw, that way, you can have everything you need for a salad that is ready to serve on the go.

Take care of yourself and your skin. Spring is in full swing – the sun is shining, insects are flying and plants are pollenating. No one wants to go home with a sunburn or a mosquito bite, so be sure to bring plenty of sunblock, bug spray and allergy remedies. If you have children, a travel first aid kit might be useful to have on hand as well. Don’t let the little things take away from your jovial moments, be prepared to protect.

It’s time to pack the food. Along with plenty of water and utensils, pick out your favorite thing to eat. If you’re making sandwiches, consider making them at your picnic area so that the bread doesn’t get soggy on the way there. If you want something sweet, cookies are easily portable. Ice packs can keep everything cold and, similarly, wrapping things in foil can help keep in the heat.

So go ahead and enjoy the sunshine and those you love with these family picnic ideas. Don’t forget a camera to make sure that you capture all the memories of the day. We hope you have fun and eat up! Subscribe to our Blog via email
