Perfect summer picnic check list


No better way to spend a day in the summer holidays then by having a picnic, We often pack one for days out to keep costs down on a day out as a family, The whole event of a picnic should be something to celebrate and lets face it we don't get much of a summer so lets make the most of it ! 

Doesn't matter if its a picnic in your garden at home or in some lovely woodlands , As long as your with the right people and know what to pack you'll have a great time. 

Picnic check list 

Potty ( not all picnic locations will have toilets near by ) 
Picnic basket or cool box
Disposable plates & cups
Baby wipes ( not just for babies! ) 
Rubbish bags 
Blankets 
Drinks ( take a flask with hot water for teas/coffees ) 
Picnic food ! ( A given really no? ) 
Ice packs ( no one wants a hot pork pie come lunch time ) 
Sun cream & hats
Umbrella ( incase of rain but also good for shade on hot days ) 
Money for the ice cream van ( doesn't matter that treats you pack for pudding the kids will ALL want a 99 from the ice cream van, And so will you ) 

We have a whole host of local places we plan to visit over the summer holidays places such as our local zoo, woodlands, splash park , flying kites up over the downs, play dates with friends at the park and lots more just in the garden. I hope you all have a lovely summer and get to enjoy a few picnics yourself.
