Packing for a Picnic


Whether it’s a day trip, camping or a big trip.  When you are on the go with kids a picnic is a great way to have a meal and an adventure.

Going on a picnic requires taking a few bits and pieces, not to mention the food!

Packing for a picnic

The picnic set all packed

This is my List, Packing for a Picnic:

  • Picnic blanket – even if you plan on using a picnic table the blanket is handy.  You can use it as a table cloth, a place for babies to crawl or the kids to sprawl out.
  • Picnic set.  Mine is permanently prepared to just fill with food and drinks.  I use one that is attached to a wheely cooler bag.  In my set I have :
    • plates,
    • cutlery,
    • glasses,
    • chopping board, and
    • serviettes.
  • If we’re BBQing I take tongs, spatula and newspaper (to clean the BBQ).
  • Ball or other sporting activity
  • Food

  • Drinks including water
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Tissues and
  • Empty plastic bags for rubbish and dirty plates etc.
