Whether it’s at the park, beach, river or forest, we love summer picnics! Our kids jump at any chance to get away from home, even if it’s just for an hour or two. The break in routine alleviates summer boredom and they get to run wild without wrecking the house, which makes mom (and therefore kids) happy.
The best part about picnics is that you don’t have to go very far to enjoy fresh air and a bit of nature. Oh, and all that running around wears the kids out while we get to relax in the shade on a blanket! With the right essentials, a picnic can be a quick and low-stress activity for the whole family to enjoy.
