Year Round Picnic Ideas and Giveaway
Picnics are a favourite bonding activity for us, whether it’s the whole family or a romantic picnic for Hubs and I. Food and location create the mood for the picnic; the company and details are what make it memorable. Picnics do not need to be only planned for the summer months or for certain picnic friendly locations; be creative and you will enjoy picnics throughout the year.
We enjoyed the Broccoli, Chicken & Pesto Rotini Salad and Honey Salsa Chicken & Spinach Wraps on our summer picnic outing and dipped chocolate soft serve ice cream cones for dessert from the local river park confectionary.
Year round picnic ideas:
1. Back to school picnic – If your child normally stays at school for lunch or it’s a shorter lunch hour, pack a lunch and enjoy it in the school playground area or a nearby park.
2. Keep active – If your daily routine entails a walk or run, take a long a backpack with a mini picnic and ask a friend to join you for a little re-energizing picnic in the grass afterwards before you go about the rest of your busy day.
3. Go on a date – These days most of us lead busy lives and sometimes our weekly or even monthly date nights dwindle. A thoughtful picnic for two will add a little peace to your hectic lives and allow for some much needed partner time.
4. Have a rainy day picnic – Whether the power is out or the weather just isn’t cooperating, take advantage of it for a little candle lit picnic for the whole family. Use it as a chance to spark a little more open conversation between family members.
One thing I love about picnics is that you are taking an outing with your family that isn’t going to cost you anything other than the food you already would be feeding your family. Change up the scenery, the activities and food and you will be sure to enjoy picnics throughout the year, like we do.
