Here’s a handy printable checklist for everything you need for a successful picnic...
Firstly think – lightweight everything! (Well as much as possible). Also, it’s not all about the food and drink, depending on the age range you’ll need to think about seating and about your family and friends being entertained even if you don’t feel like taking part!
Games & other ‘stuff’:
Rule 2 - Plan both the food/drinks you are taking and a good location, nothing worse than driving round and round trying to find ‘just the right spot’.
Rule 3 – pack as much as possible in lightweight resealable containers to avoid messy leaks.
Rule 4 – avoid any foods that will go ‘off’ in the heat like Mayonnaise or become oily eg. cheddar cheese.
See Part 2 of this blog for food suggestions.
