How to have the ultimate picnic

4 STEPS

Dining al fresco with friends and family is one of the best ways to enjoy the warmer seasons. So slice up the watermelon, find the Frisbee and get outside.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Step

Keep food safe

You’ve made delicious food for your picnic and now it’s time to pack it up, so it stays cold and fresh. Use coolers with plenty of ice packs for any perishable food items and to keep beverages chilled. Choose coolers that are portable, either on wheels or with carrying straps for easy transport.

Step

Create a comfy spot

Once you’ve found a lovely spot, make it comfortable for everyone by laying out lots of blankets and setting up umbrellas or portable shelters to provide shade. Add some convenient portable chairs —look for kid's chairs that lock into place which prevents collapsing, for peace of mind. 

Step

Set your table

If you’re using a picnic table or setting up a portable table, cover it with a tablecloth for easy clean up. Always add clamps to the sides of your tablecloth, to stop it and everything else from blowing away!

Step

Add activities

Add a little fun to the event by bringing along a badminton set, a baseball and gloves, or a soccer ball to kick around.
