Picnicking is fun when you spend it with family or friends. You can spend it at a park, a beach, or even your own backyard. But like many activities, you have to plan for it. Here are some tips for picnicking fun in the sun!

Check the Forecast

A picnic in the rain is no fun at all. Check your local weather for the day to ensure your picnic will be rain free. If it looks overcast, plan ahead and set up your food under provided park shelters if they have them! However, it’s always best to do it on a sunny day.

Bring Comfy Blankets  

Choose comfortable blankets to picnic on. Prepare for there to be damp grass or rocks, so bring something thick enough. Opt for blankets wide enough to fit all the things picnic-oriented like food baskets, containers, towels, coolers, etc.  

Bring Picnic-Friendly Food and Drink

Finger foods like sandwiches, fries, meatballs, or chips are perfect for picnics.  Then, pick any refreshment such as canned soda, bottled water, or boxed juice. What’s a picnic without food and drinks you can enjoy over conversations?

Locate the Perfect Spot

Staying under trees may get you prone to bird droppings. It’s best to locate your ideal picnic spot before setting up. Find a place where you’re most comfortable at the park. If you’re at the beach, make sure the waves wouldn’t wash away your belongings. Finding the perfect spot will make your picnic experience worthwhile.

Live in the Moment

Picnics are made for relaxation. Be present as you spend quality time with your friends or family. Keep your thoughts off work or school, which may spoil you from having a good time.  Bring games, soccer balls, frisbees, cards and more to living up the picnic, Just live in the moment!

Picnics are ideal during sunny days or when the weather is good for outdoor activities. Whether you spend it at the park, beach, or your backyard, your experience is best spent when you’re with people you care about the most. Make the most of your picnic experience and invite your friends or family!
