The 1st of July marks the start of National Picnic Month – what a fantastic opportunity to take part and enjoy a picnic with your little ones!
We’ve put together this handy guide to help our mummies and daddies to enjoy National Picnic Month… Here’s what you’re going to need!
A Comfy & Lightweight Picnic Chair
These are a great investment for Summer – ideal for picnics as they’re lightweight and will fit easily in the car boot.
Priced at just £10 they’re a great buy!
Outdoor Family Games
These outdoor games look like they’d bring so much fun to a family picnic! With prices starting from as little as £2 – the kids would love them.
A Picnic Basket
You’ll need something to carry all your picnic goodies in. Traditional style wicker hampers are back in fashion, but we’re also loving the modern bee print picnic backpack too!
Some Picnic Tableware
You’ll need something lightweight that’s easy to carry to eat off. Melamine, acrylic and bamboo are all great materials to choose from! This summer, vivid hues and interesting prints are in, and the little ones are going to LOVE it!
A Cute Picnic Blanket
If you’re not sure if you’ll want to sit on bare grass (or sand if you’re a beachy parent!), a nice picnic blanket/rug is just what you need, and these top picks should meet all tastes…
A Cooler Bag
There are so many cooler bags to choose from; we’ve picked these for their practicality, space for all the snacks your little one will want, and of course their style!
Delicious Sweet and Savoury Treats
When it comes to packing for a picnic it can sometimes be stressful! Fear not, as we’ve found some seriously delicious delicacies from Marks and Spencer.
The Best Ways To Keep a Baby Shaded During a Summer Picnic
One of the biggest worries our mummies and daddies have over the summer is their baby burning or becoming overheated.
This can be overcome with a good sun hat, a shelter for when the sun is very intense, and if your little one will be spending time in their pram napping, we really rate the Snoozeshade. Don’t worry – it is designed to be air permeable and allow proper air flow, to keep baby cool and getting enough air.
We hope this has helped our mummies & daddies to plan the PERFECT family picnic! Is there anything you’d add to our list? Let us know in the comments.
