On Your Marks, Get Set, Picnic!

Millie, Badly Drawn Mum

Do you remember that feeling, waking up on the first day of the summer holidays and thinking you had a whole six weeks of no school? As a parent it’s the exact opposite. When Evie breaks up in a month’s time I knew I was going to wake up and think... “6 whole weeks! What on EARTH are we going to do?”

Of course there are millions of things to do from visiting friends (tick) and grandparents (tick), camping (tick), days out at theme parks (too expensive). But I’ve decided this summer will be the summer of the picnic. Everyone can get involved in making sandwiches and packing the bag. And since you’re outside it’s also a good place to eat really messy food (cupcakes etc.)

Here was our list from today:

  • Ham sandwiches
  • Carrot Batons
  • Houmous
  • Breadsticks
  • Crisps
  • Cheese (cut up into lumps)
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Apples, bananas and grapes
  • Plenty of juice

The other four essentials are hats, suncream, towels and a change of clothes, especially if you’re near water. And if like today, you're ready to go and it starts to chuck it down, bring the outside inside and have a kitchen picnic...
