Our Tip Picks for National Picnic Month

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.

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.

Find the Pink Broderie Hat here*.

Find the Snoozeshade here*.

Find the LittleLife Compact Beach Shelter here*.

Find the Woven Sun Hat here*.


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.
