Tips for how to Find a location for a Family Picnic
There are so many places to have a family picnic. From a local park, to the beach, to your own front or backyard the options are endless. This spot is in the neighborhood next to ours. It has a fun history. It used to be a drive through safari park called Africa USA. The lake makes it a fun spot for photos and a family picnic.
Picnic Items List
Having a family picnic can be as simple as a blanket and some yummy food. If you want to make it extra special here are the things we brought.
- A super soft blanket
- Pillows to lean up against
- A picnic basket to carry all your goodies.
- Food your family will all enjoy.
- Plastic dishes and silverware. Platters, they will help so that if you spill food you will not drop it on the blanket.
- Balloons or ball to play with
- We used a laundry basket to easily transport everything.
Food to Bring to a Picnic
Speaking of food. For a picnic, I love to keep the menu simple. And one of my favorite hacks especially for busy times like back-to-school is to do take-out. For this picnic, we went to our local Boston Market. They have over 370 locations in the US so they should have a store near you. To order your meal for an easy dinner option you can go to their website or download the Boston Market app. They have something everyone in our family enjoys from their rotisserie chicken to fresh veggies.
The family meal deal gives you so many options with rotisserie chicken, three sides and cornbread. This was B’s first time having their sweet potatoes, I wish I had recorded her reaction. They are so sweet and delicious you could enjoy them for dessert. We also got their mac and cheese and creamed spinach which are always family favorites. The chicken is so delicious and it falls right off the bone.
