A shared picnic is an experience for the whole family. It will be talked about for years to come if it is successful. But what makes an outdoor day special, be it a park, a forest clearing or just a green area on the outskirts? The fact, that everything is well prepared. The food is tastefully prepared in the boxes, all we need, is to put it in our mouths! During the trip, we will find activities that both children and adults can engage in, either together or separately. Active participation is key to great experiences.
With a little creativity, each piece of tableware can be individually personalized, kids can come up with their own themed ideas. While parents are doing the preparations at home, children can already decorate the plates, glasses and silverware with the help of some paint or felt-tip pan.
It is worth to take a creative approach to preparing food, as this is a creative activity too. Cut many seasonal vegetables into equal pieces and place them in a box. This makes for a perfect snack and a side dish as well. Prepare everything neatly for the grill as well, whether we want to grill sausages, cheese or vegetables, everything should be ready in advance.
We also can prepare tortillas by chopping up the ingredients beforehand and placing them into boxes, so as to when we are outdoors we just have to pile up and cook them.

During the picnic, there will come a moment when the children need something to do, this is when the creative ideas and funny games come into play. It’s a real fun family experiment to do these together.
