The best way to spend time with your children on weekends is to take them out for an outdoor activity and have a picnic. It will be simple for you to go to the park, the mountains, to play in the snow, or just have a walk in the forest! This guarantees the "WOW" factor!
Children enjoy eating outside since they don't have to worry about their table manners or leaving a mess. We can't deny that this makes things easier for parents: no more cleaning up an untidy home!
Now, the secret to a successful picnic is to keep things simple! Bringing finger foods, such as sandwiches, pizza slices, or even chicken strips, is a great way to keep things simple. Cut veggies like carrots, bell peppers, and cucumber as well as washed fruits like peaches, cherries, and pears, should be a great addition. Of course, some packaged goods such as chips, crackers, and cookies, as well as juice boxes and water bottles, are required! Remember to bring plenty of tissues and wipes for sticky fingers and faces!
If you're concerned that your children may become bored, rest assured that simply sitting on the grass and eating outside will offer them great joy! In any case, you may always bring some toys and games to keep the kids entertained before and after they eat. They'll have a blast with some sidewalk chalk, bubbles, and balls! Even a coloring book can be more enjoyable when you color the pictures outside in the fresh air!
Remember, a picnic is a great way to get away from your daily routine and spend some quality time with your family while watching them play and simply being happy!
